The Sailing Masters of 1812 Fife and Drum Corps is seeking new members interested in joining the color guard or in playing the fife, snare or bass drum. The corps was founded in 1963 as the Essex Fife and Drum Corps to perpetuate the art of ancient fifing and drumming and to commemorate the role of Essex in the War of 1812. Every year the corps performs in more than 20 parades, musters and concerts in addition to weekly rehearsal sessions every Monday night at the Essex Town Hall. Musical experience is not required.
