Paris Port Dover Pipe Band
Non-profit Pipe band
On the 11th March 2023 the PPDPB preformed to a sold out crowd at the Lighthouse theatre in Port Dover! It was an amazing return to the stage for the pipe band and couldn't have asked for a better venue or audience. THANK YOU to everyone that came out to support the band.
Government of Ontario’s Community Building Fund – Operating stream
Paris Port Dover Pipe Band provides young people of any skill level with instruction in Scottish music and gives them the opportunity to play with the band. We teach youth how to act as ambassadors for Canada, the province of Ontario and our local Brant and Norfolk Counties. We strive to educate on the importance of giving back to local service clubs and non-profit groups by assisting with various ceremonies, memorials, parades and events through band performances.
Practicing during COVID-19
For most of the Piping world 2020 / 2021 and the beginning of 2022 hasn't been easy. Keeping pipers / drummers and the band as a whole ready to play has been a challenge to say the least. With social distancing measures in place and face coverings required in most areas playing the pipes outside your home is almost impossible.
Paris Port Dover Pipe Band is a not for profit community organization. Active members of the band are provided Kilt, Jacket, Vest and Sporran. Other uniform parts are paid for by the band members. Group Lessons are free to members but private lessons can be booked and paid for by members as needed.
Donations are always welcome to help keep this service running.
