Welcome to the RCMP Pipes, Drums and Dancers of the National Capital Region (NCR).
The Band serves communities policed by the RCMP in Ontario, Quebec and the NCR itself. The members of the Pipeband are comprised of active members of the RCMP along with citizen volunteers who come together to share and showcase their musical talent and perform for the communities they serve.
Celtic music has a powerful appeal to young and old alike and this initiative provides a unique opportunity to bring the community closer to its national police force. The Band and Dancers perform at dozens of events each year for local, national and international audiences.
The photograph above was taken at the Canadian Police And Peace Officer's Memorial on Sunday, September 29, 2013 in Ottawa, Ontario.
For a true national presence, this Composite Band was comprise of members from Vancouver, Edmonton, Regina, Ottawa, Montreal, Moncton and Halifax.
The following video was taken in August of 2012 at the FMMIQ Tattoo in Quebec City, Quebec. The video is a testament to the members from across the country that came together in a composite band and put on a terrific show.
