Music

Music from the pipes and drums breathe a sense of passion and pride to those who hear it.  From funerals, to competitions or stage performances with the likes of the Chieftains – we strive to balance the requirements of our performances with the skill level  of our players.

The band’s repertoire is divided into three tiers with tier one being the most important as it forms a foundation for providing a distinguishing feature for a fallen hero’s funeral.   A tiered music program allows us to flourish as an organization and allows us to continue to move forward.
