Toronto Police Pipe Band Announces Concert

The Grade 1 Toronto Police Pipe Band has announced that it will perform on stage on March 31, 2001, at the Cardinal Carter Academy Theatre in the band’s home town. The concert, “One Fine Day – a New Dimension in Celtic Music,” will also feature the Scottish Dance Company of Canada.

The band, which was one of the 13 qualifiers for the final at the 2000 World Pipe Band Championships, and which has featured in numerous Grade 1 prize lists for the last 10 years, has enjoyed an influx of top piping and drumming talent.

In the pipe section, top players such as James MacHattie, formerly of the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band, and James Troy Jr., formerly of the Peel Regional Police Pipe Band, have been welcomed into the ranks. The drum section has also benefited, with the addition of four former members of the Peel Regional Police, including that band’s former lead drummer, Jeremy Keddy.

Keddy was replaced as lead drummer of Peel by Drew Duthart in September 2000.

Further information on the concert can be obtained by contacting 905-459-1125.
