The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes returns to Scotland
The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes served as "America's Band" as the only U.S. organization that participated in the 2010 Diamond Jubilee of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, a month-long nightly festival of music, pageantry and demonstrations by military organizations and entertainers from around the world.
It was the second time The Citadel received a prestigious invitation to the international festival, the largest of its kind in the world. The Citadel was the first military college invited to the Edinburgh (pronounced Edin-bur-uh) Tattoo in 1991 and is the only military college ever invited to take part. Set against the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, the Tattoo features musical talent and performers from around the world.
The Tattoo, which attracts thousands to Scotland, is broadcast to millions of people around the world by the BBC. Learn more through our blogs, photo slide shows and videos by clicking on the links below.
