Since the first issue in 1966, Cadence (previously known as Sounding Brass) has served as a place for cadets to ply their creative talents, opening small windows onto their everyday lives and reflecting their perspectives on their contemporary concerns, including war, social movements, and an ever-changing Institute.

The title, Cadence, honors both the regimented call-and-response work song, so familiar to cadets from their daily lives, as well as the term in its more poetic context, indicating the rhythmic unfolding of sounds and words. Cadence represents the best of these two worlds, a beauty ceaselessly forged from the everyday experiences of cadets at Virginia Military Institute.
