CBA Pipes & Drums Band

A vision of President Brother Frank Byrne ‘75, the CBA Pipes & Drums Band was founded in 2011 and is one of the few high school pipe bands in the nation. With the goal of providing students with high quality instruction, the band meets weekly during the school year and three times per week during the February & March performance season.

The band welcomes all students, including those with no previous experience. Club officers are elected by the moderators based upon skill & performance. To remain a member in good standing, students must attend 75 percent of practices and 85 percent of performances.
