Band News – Nov 2016

Drum lessons continue under the tutelage of Gordon Bell, world ranked instructor and competition judge. He is joined by his wife Bernadette, who is training the Tenor Drums. This is a great time to take advantage of high level instruction, sponsored by Patrick Torphy Pipe and Drums. Bagpipe lessons are also available to interested parties.

Parade season planning is underway. Interest in traveling to Washington DC for their 3/12 parade is under consideration.

On 10/21, Patrick Torphy Pipe and Drums are honored to have been the only civilian band performing at the Middletown Salute to the USA. A combined effort between the Middletown Police Department and the Middletown School District, the event honored law enforcement, veterans, first responders and the United States of America.
