The Highty-Tighties, the Corps of Cadets' regimental band, are Virginia Tech's longest-serving musical organization and the oldest collegiate band in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Explore our history, our accomplishments, and our upcoming events.
The Highty-Tighties perform at all home football games, the Pep Band attends home women’s basketball games, and the band frequently is invited to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Cherry Blossom Festival, Savannah’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and Mardi Gras.
At Virginia Tech you can invent the future while you make history with us — accomplishments that last a lifetime.
