CHARLESTON — The following cadets will travel to Canada this summer with The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes.
• Evin Ross Fowler, Union, Criminal Justice
• Carl Alijanjuan Harris, Union, Psychology and Modern Language
The Citadel’s premier musical unit will participate in the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo, the largest indoor show in the world featuring more than 2,000 Canadian and international military and civilian performers.
This will be The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes first appearance at the Nova Scotia Tattoo. It comes three years after a prestigious invitation and repeat performance at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 2010.
As one of the 21 companies comprising the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, the Regimental Band and Pipes leads the way and sets the tempo that all other cadets follow. While the Regimental Band and Pipes functions as a single cadet company at The Citadel, it has two parts — the Regimental Band and the Regimental Pipe Band. The Regimental Band is made up of about 80 cadet musicians. The Pipe Band is composed of a drum major and approximately 30 to 35 pipers and drummers.
The Citadel, founded in 1842, is a public, coeducational military college in Charleston, S.C., that offers a classic military education for young men and women seeking a college experience that is challenging, meaningful and academically strong. With the core values of honor, duty and respect, The Citadel prepares its graduates to be principled leaders for the military as well as the global workplace.
