MEMBER ADVISEMENT: AOCDS PIPE BAND RECRUITING NEW MEMBERS

Article published on February 24, 2017

STRIKE UP THE BAND! ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ON A DIFFERENT BEAT?
AOCDS IS CALLING ALL BAGPIPERS AND DRUMMERS TO JOIN OUR PIPE BAND.

Are you an experienced bagpiper or drummer? Are you new to bagpipes and drums but play a different instrument? Or are you a musical novice who’s looking to commit to a fun, exciting and rewarding new hobby? If the answer is yes to any of the above, we want to talk to you.

The AOCDS Pipe Band has been performing since 2012 and welcomed drummers a year later. It’s made up of world-class piping and drumming instructors who have played in competition bands, including the Grade 1 LA Scots. The AOCDS Pipe Band has been honored to perform at various funerals and memorials over the years, and has played at both the Orange County Peace Officers’ Memorial and National Peace Officers’ Memorial in Washington, DC. In the last four years, the band has also brought their powerful music to the following noteworthy events, among others:

-Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics of Southern California
-Orange County Police Canine Association Show
-Fraternal Order of Police Conferences
-Lawmen Football Game

Commitment
-Attend weekly practice with entire band on Wednesdays from approximately 5 to 8 p.m. at AOCDS in Santa Ana.
-Daily individual practice.

Prior musical experience is preferred but not mandatory. If you’re enthusiastic and highly committed, we can arrange private lessons for you (cost to be determined between student and instructor).
Thinking about joining this honorable and fulfilling cause? We invite you to attend one of our practices to see whether it’s for you. If you’re an experienced piper, bring your practice chanter and pipes. If you’re an inexperienced piper or drummer at any level, just bring yourselves. We also encourage you to spread the word to your friends and family, even if they don’t work in law enforcement.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET INVOLVED OR HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, CALL OR EMAIL LYNDA HALLIGAN AT AOCDS: 714-285-2800 EXT. 106/LYNDA@AOCDS.ORG.

Thank you for your support.
