The New York City Fire Museum has now launched a new exhibition, Strike Up the Band: A Tribute to the Bands of the Bravest, which tells the story of the New York City Fire Department’s extensive musical traditions that span generations. The exhibition will be on display from April 26, 2023 through late August 2023, and will take guests on a journey of over 100 years of history. It will include historic objects such as bagpipes and drums, uniforms, trophies and photographs from throughout the bands’ histories, as well as modern video displays that allow visitors to fully explore this little-known aspect of the department. “The arts are what continue to inspire us and keep our cultures alive, and the FDNY is no exception. That is why we are elated to share this unique, months-long exhibition with our community,” said Sean Britton, Collection Manager and Curator at the New York City Fire Museum.
