Many thanks to Dr. Rick Forno, ’90 & ’92C, not a Bandie, but a great supporter of the Band for as long as I can remember. He provided this long video of a 1991 Thanksgiving Tattoo. Click here or on the graphic to go to the full description of this event!

These are recordings from a few different 3rd mess formations which include, retreat, hymns, the National Anthem and marches. You can hear the regimental commander calling the corps to attention and present arms if you listen carefully.
I did some noise removal and other minor edits to the files so that these details were easier to hear and more consistent in volume.

Thanks again to Gerry Fornwald, ’55, we have this videotape recording from 1990. It features the entirety of the 1990 Alumni Weekend Band Concert conducted in part by Col. Feltham. The whole program runs around 45 minutes long, but you can click into it at various points in the program.
This is an audio recording of VFMA’s performance at President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s 63rd birthday in Hershey, PA. Many thanks for the recording to Gerry Fornwald, ’55, who was there! There’s a fair amount of distortion on the original, but you can get a sense of the VFMA Band and choir in 1953.
