CBA Pipes & Drums Band

A vision of President Brother Frank Byrne ‘75, the CBA Pipes & Drums Band 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 performs for other schools, in parades and at receptions. Band highlights include:

  • Best Marching Unit (2019 Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade)
  • Best High School Band (2014 & 2015 Freehold Memorial Day Parades)
  • Best Overall Parade Band (2014 Freehold Memorial Day Parade)
  • Best Junior Band (2013 Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade)

Members of the band receiving the "Best Marching Unit" award for the 2019 Rumson Parade.

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.
