Tempo54 featuring drumlines from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) will be held at Coastal Carolina University on Saturday, March 22, at 5:30 p.m. in the HTC Student Recreation and Convocation Center.
As a unique style of entertainment, drumlines showcase precision, technique and style, which have very intricate moves. The event is open to the public with the purchase of a ticket.
