Remember people, no matter who you are, and whatever you do to live, thrive and survive, there are still some things that make us all the same: you, me, him, them – everybody, everybody!
2011 brought about many changes in our organization. Our mission will always be to provide traditional bagpipe and drum music and to be service to those brave men and women who serve and protect. Furthering our musical mission, competing members of the band continue to challenge competitive levels in both piping and drumming >> all the while having fun and enjoying the camaraderie.
Wake & District is certainly open to new membership. Most incoming members are complete beginning students interested in learning the great Highland bagpipes, Scottish snare drum, flourishing and rhythm tenor drum, or bass drum. The band recognizes the importance for young and old alike to be grounded properly in the basic technique and musicality seen with these unique instruments.
Wake & District Public Safety Pipes & Drums also welcomes individuals who already play pipes or drums and are interested in joining a success-driven group of like-minded musicians. While the directive staff does keep their eyes out for talented players, WE CANNOT READ MINDS. If you wish to become a part of our group – do not hesitate to ask – or come to our open house…
On Sunday, 22 January 2012 from 3:00 – 6:00 pm our competing members will be hosting an Open House at Tir Na nOg.
Band leadership will be on hand to provide information to those interested in joining our ranks. We will be available to discuss our upcoming competition season, events and what it means to be a part of Wake and District!
If you are a piper or drummer stop on by the nOg >> we’d love to talk with YOU about joining our organization.
