“We could not have done it without the support of the Linton Hall School parents, faculty and staff and most of all our wonderful students who are comfortable balancing academics and extracurricular activities.” said Liz Poole, Principal of Linton Hall School. “We are very proud of our Fife and Drum Corps.”
The Linton Hall School will be performing for Bishop Loverde and the Catholic Business Network tomorrow, May 8, 2014, at the Doubletree in Sterling, Virginia.
The fife and drum were heavily used during battles of the Revolutionary War to relay commands to the troops until the bugle entered the scene during the Civil War. The tradition of the fife and drum lives on in military and civilian performance groups, including the Linton Hall School Fife & Drum Corps.
