QLD Police Pipes and Drums

5/05/2017
Pumicestone State School recently hosted a performance from the Queensland Police Pipes and Drums (sometimes known as “Cops in Kilts”) which was held in our undercover area. This group plays the following instruments: -  bass and snare drums, drum kit, bass guitar and Highland Scottish bagpipes and together they all produced a very LOUD sound. We also heard an explanation of how bagpipes make that special sound.
Our students were treated to a variety of songs as diverse as “Scotland the Brave” and “Limbo Rock.” Ten lucky students were given the opportunity to show off their rhythmic skills playing percussion instruments while the entire school sang a very enthusiastic rendition of “Bob the Builder” accompanied by the Pipes and Drums. The concert concluded with “Waltzing Matilda.”
Our students looked great in their uniforms and really enjoyed this special musical experience.
