First Capital Fife and Drum Muster

The CYMS Fifes & Drums were founded in 1971 by then band director at the school Ken Matthews and continue to exist today as one of the only fife and drum corps’ in America which are part of a public school music curriculum. The corps is active throughout Central Pennsylvania and beyond, having performed in New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, DC, Richmond, Norfolk, and Colonial Williamsburg.

There will be a 2:00pm parade starting at the Colonial Courthouse proceeding to PeoplesBank
Park, followed by performances from each unit in attendance at the stadium. The performances will be followed by fireworks and a “jam session” for all attendees.  Admission is free and open to the public.

Fife and Drum Corps’ from Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and Virginia will be in attendance. A highlight of the event will be Friday and Saturday performances by the US Army “Old Guard” Fifes and Drums, one of the premiere musical units in the United States military, and one of the top fife and drum corps in the world!

This is not a York County History Center event, but we are happy to support our local students and musicians.
