The magnificent pageantry of British military tradition and history comes to life when these two esteemed military bands take the stage in ceremonial uniforms to fill the hall with rousing marches, stirring anthems, the distinctive sounds of bagpipes and brass, high-spirited Scottish highland sword dances and the precision of regimental marching. With a grand history spanning nearly three centuries, The Black Watch has served in historic conflicts going back to Ticonderoga and Waterloo, and its pipes and drummers have proudly escorted the troops into battle. The Band of the Scots Guards, formed in 1642 by King Charles, boosted morale for British troops throughout both World Wars, and today, this celebrated 40-member orchestra performs at the daily Guard Mounting at Buckingham Palace and at various state functions, while also touring the globe. Don’t miss this exciting performance featuring all of the pomp and circumstance of British life.
