The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo presents The Band of the Royal Marines and the Pipes, Drums and Highland Dancers of the Scots Guards on Thursday, January 28, 2016 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $29.50, Students (any school) $21.50.
Hundreds of years of military traditions and pageantry come alive on stage when The Band of the Royal Marines joins forces with the Pipes, Drums, and Highland Dancers of the Scots Guards. The evening will celebrate the music of Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales.
In their distinguishing white helmets, The Band of the Royal Marines is known for their musicianship, visual grandeur and precision drills and they have become quite popular on the concert stage. As enlisted service men and women, members of the band have been deployed on active duty in all major conflicts of the last century.
The sound of the pipes has long instilled a great sense of pride and passion which has both inspired Scottish soldiers in the heat of battle and driven fear into the enemy. The precise drums, haunting bagpipes and spirited dancers of the Scots Guards add another exciting and awe-inspiring dimension to the program.
A consistent favorite of Center for the Arts audiences, previous visits by other military bands have played to packed crowds and standing ovations. The groups also traditionally pay tribute to the branches of the U.S. military during their performance.
