Fife & Drum Taptoe Concert Series, Trenton's Old Barracks Museum

Saturday July 14, 2018
7:30 PM

The Old Barracks Museum celebrates history, music, and warm summer evenings with the fourth annual Taptoe Concert Series on July 14 and July 28. The gates open at 7:30 PM and the music starts at 8 PM to magically and musically transport you to the 18th century. Reserved seating is available on the balconies or you can bring a lawn chair and enjoy the performance from the ground.

The Taptoe recreates a summer evening in 18th century Trenton, when the musick and the guard would march through a garrison town signaling the time for the taverns to close their taps and for the soldiers to return to their barracks. Beginning at dusk, the evening will be illuminated with dramatic lighting by torches, candles, and spotlights. In addition to a selection of military tunes, an orchestral and dramatic production of music from the motion picture The Last of the Mohicans composed by Trevor Jones will be performed by the Barracks Band of Musick conducted by Daniel Spalding.

Advanced tickets available for purchase online at www.barracks.org. Ticket prices are as follows: $25 reserved balcony seating with included light refreshments; $10 lawn seating; $20 reserved balcony seating for Old Barracks Museum members.
