New Equipment!

​Thanks to the Directorate of Cadet Activities we were able to complete an entire refitting of the band.   Three years ago the bands equipment was in disrepair, but thanks to DCA and several donations, the band is now equipped more appropriately to what should be expected in a military band.  Over the past two years the band has replaced worn and damaged items with the result being that the band is almost 100% reequipped.  Thanks to DCA and to our donors.

The Dancers are Back!
After a hiatus of over ten years, the USCC Pipes & Drums dancers are back!  Cadet Alissah McGill and Cadet Alexis Martinez are spearheading efforts to resurrect the dance program at the United States Military Academy.  CDT McGill performed as part of the Army-Navy "Battle-of-the-Bands" in December of 2013 and also attended workshops with the Royal Military College of Canada Highland Dancers in January.  We are excited to bring back what was once a huge component of the band.
