The D3 Fife and Drum Corps invites you to join us in the 19th Annual Freezer Jam Concert at the University of Michigan’s Lydia Mendhelshon Theater in Ann Arbor, MI at 3pm on March 1, 2014. Freezer Jam 2014 features performances by fife and drum corps from around the midwest, including Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Each corps will perform a set of music pulled from historical manuscripts as well as other traditional music sources wearing uniforms from the 1700s. Fife and Drum music has been an ongoing tradition in the Midwest and the Eastern Seaboard since the Colonial era. Come experience the wealth of our nation’s musical heritage!
Each ticket costs $10 and directly supports the day long program of workshops that the musicians attend. Tickets for the concert are available online through our nonprofit partner, BrownPaperTickets.com here.

Important details about Freezer Jam 2014
- We are offering a friendly individual competition for junior (under 16 years) and senior (16 and older) fifers and drummers at Freezer Jam 2014. Space is limited, so interested musicians should sign up by contacting us at [d3corps at gmail com]. We will ask all competitors to perform (by memory) one common tune and a tune of their choice. There are competitions in fife and drum. We will have a prize for the winner of each category, and we would like to invite the top winners to perform during the concert. More details will be posted soon.
- Once again, we will be hosting the “same tune, different corps” feature at Freezer Jam 2014. This year, we invite individuals and/or corps to bring a unique arrangement or variation on “The Power of Whiskey” to Freezer Jam 2014. We will have an hour-long session dedicated to the shared performances of our collected variations. We will have music stands available for this session. If your group or one of your members would like to arrange this tune, please let us know so that we can set aside enough time – you can email us at [d3corps at gmail com]. Also, we’d like to collect these variations and assemble them into an online music book for the fife and drum community.
- We will have free lodging and discounted hotels available for corps members traveling from out of town. Those details will be posted soon.
- Also, parking will be available for the workshop attendees. We will have maps ready to share soon as well.
Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions! Thanks and we look forward to seeing you in a couple of months!
