Spring Concert to be held by The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes, April 24

Hear the ONLY military band in the U.S. to be invited to perform in prestigious global Tattoo program

CHARLESTON, S.C.− When thinking of The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes, images of marches and parades may come to mind. However, this world-famous military band, comprised of members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, has much more in its repertoire than most would expect.

See one of The Citadel's global performances aired by the BBC here.

At 6:30p.m. on April 24, 2014, the community is invited to McAlister Field House for an opportunity to listen to the band in concert. Under the direction of retired Navy Commander Mike Alverson, and Pipes Director, Major Jim Dillahey, the cadets of the Regimental Band and Pipes will present selections of varied musical styles-from Broadway to featured soloists, to the traditional sounds of Scotland.

The band, which was formed in 1954, is one of the most recognized cadet organizations at The Citadel. It is also the only military band in the U.S. to have been invited to perform in the world's most prestigious military band event called the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, in Edinburgh, Scotland. They have been invited back to perform at Tattoo in 2015.

This annual spring concert event is free and open to the public.
