All Ages Virtual History Camp: Field Music and Bugling: The Army’s Musical Clock!
Provider: John Connors, Military Musician and Music Historian – Readiness NCO, 122nd Army Band – Freelance Civil War Field Musician
You might wake up to an alarm or know when to change classes during school by a bell. In those moments you’re being told what to do by sounds, much like Civil War soldiers. Tunes played by buglers told soldiers when to wake-up, when to eat, and were the figurative megaphones for commanders trying to give orders to hundreds of soldiers. In this session, you’ll hear Civil War bugle tunes and learn the history of the bugle’s importance by seeing the instruments and uniforms used by field musicians, listening to the calls that regulated Army life, and create functional meaning for musical sounds they make themselves!
