100 Nights of Taps – 2023

With 100 Nights of Taps we honor the fallen laid to rest at the Gettysburg National Cemetery. Beginning on Memorial Day and ending on Labor Day, each evening a bugler will sound taps at the cemetery in Gettysburg, PA. Taps is sounded at 7 pm.

This year we are pleased to have the participation of trumpeters from active duty military bands, from the National Symphony in Washington, Baltimore Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, retired military, educators, students, full time professional performers as well as the many who play for the sheer love of performing. Plus the many who honor our veterans who make sure there is a live bugler at military funerals.

The Program Opens on May 29, 2023
