MCV is always looking for talented fifers, snare drummers and bass drummers to join our ranks. MCV plays 10 hole Healy fifes; our rope tension snare and bass drums are made by Cooperman.

MCV also seeks additional Color Guard recruits: we have immediate openings for this section.


MCV rehearses Sunday evenings at the MITRE Corporation in Bedford, Massachusetts and performs throughout New England, primarily March through November. We also regularly travel overseas. Recent tours have been to Scotland (Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo), Canada (Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo), Sydney, Australia (Edinburgh Military Tattoo’s Salute to Australia), Sweden (Sweden International Tattoo) and Switzerland (Basel Tattoo).

Basic requirements for MCV membership:


  • Must be age 16 or older and in good physical health
  • Must be able to march in our style (training available)
  • Required to pass specific audition requirements for the fife or drum line
