More About Our Group
We play 10-hole wooden fifes made by the Healy Flute Company. Instruments are supplied by the group or you can purchase your own if you prefer.
Our uniforms are hand made by one of our members and are exact replicas of those worn by Union soldiers during the American Civil War. During the hottest months of the year we’ll wear our cooler uniforms for comfort.
We rehearse most Monday nights from 7 to 9pm in Marlborough, Connecticut. It’s actually a pretty central location and we have members from all across the state, from the shoreline to the Massachussetts border.
Connecticut Valley Field Music performs in about two dozen events per year, ranging from hometown parades and anniversaries, fife and drum musters, and concerts to school programs and other special presentations.
The corps travels around Connecticut and southern New England each year, with occassional trips to such destinations as Williamsburg Virginia, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. We traveled to Basil, Switzerland twice, most recently in June 2017, where we performed several well-received concerts around Zurich, Basel, and Wädenswil.
Here are a few photos of us from over the years. Connecticut Valley Field Music is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2018!
