Fife & Drum Taptoe Concert


Jul 14, 2018
08:00 PM until 10:00 PM


This event recreates a summer evening in 18th century Trenton, when the musick and the guard would march about a garrison town signaling the time for the taverns to close their taps and for the soldiers to return to their barracks. Beginning at dusk, the evening will be illuminated with dramatic lighting by torches, candles, and spotlights. In addition to a selection of military tunes, an orchestral and dramatic production of music from the motion picture The Last of the Mohicans composed by Trevor Jones will be performed by the Barracks Band of Musick conducted by Daniel Spalding. This program is made possible in part by the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission through funding from the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, A Partner Agency of the National Endowment of the Arts.
