areas including Cunnamulla, St. George, Cairns, Charleville and Osaka Japan in
The ‘Kops-In-Kilts’ program is a free concert, 45 minutes in duration,
comprising of traditional and modern Pipe Band music as well as children’s
favourites including Bob the Builder, Limbo Rock and the Mexican Hat Dance. A part
of the performance will be interactive and some students will have the
opportunity to be involved in providing additional percussion to music.
The Police Pipes & Drums wear traditional Highland dress and a
member of the Band will provide an explanation of the uniform, the reason
behind its use as well as the history and operation of the bagpipes and drums.
At the conclusion of the performance there will be time for the
students to ask any questions that they may have in relation to the performance
and maybe feel what it is like to play a drum.
