Fife and Drum Presentation Last Week
Last Friday, 12-4-2015, the Hanaford's volunteer fife and drum corps came to SACS and gave a presentation to the Voyagers community. It was more than a demonstration of skills as students got to try playing fifes and learned about the history of the instruments demonstrated. Here is an amazing video demonstration of the kind of drumming presented.
