Richmond County Pipes and Drums is a family orientated, community band based in Staten Island. The organization was founded in 1976 with several guiding principles that has made the band successful for almost 40 years.
The most important principle is to further and encourage the study and practice in the arts of piping and drumming, its proper execution and its rituals and traditions. The group seeks to foster a spirit of mutual respect, friendship and camaraderie among band, its respective members, friends and supporters.
They are always looking for new members to join in.
The band offers FREE piping and drumming lessons to students of all ages. Beginners are always welcome if you like to have fun and are willing to participate in community activities throughout the year but especially during the month of March. The band participates in events in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Long Island and New Jersey.
Practices are held every Thursday night at 7:30 pm at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in the Eltingville section of Staten Island. Email ahead to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
