Your thoughtful donation will support NY Metro's journey as we travel to Glasgow, Scotland in August to compete in the 2013 World Pipe Band Championship! More ...
The NY Metro Pipe Band was formed in January 2010 under the leadership of Pipe Major Mike Mahoney and Lead Drummer Adrian Mordaunt. The founding vision was simple: build a world-class, internationally competitive band comprised of the best pipers and drummers in the NY metro area.

NY Metro, 2012 Grade 2 North American Champions, will be making a trip to Glasgow, Scotland in August to compete in the World Pipe Band Championship and to perform in the annual Pipes of Peace concert along with Scottish Power Pipe Band and 78th Fraser Highlanders Pipe Band. As a non-profit band with membership representing the New York City and tri-state area, we are very grateful for your support for what can be an expensive trip.

Being a member of an internationally competitive pipeband is akin to a part-time job, with many hours of personal and group practice required each week. In addition to increasingly expensive instruments and uniforms, (about $2,000 per member, out-of-pocket), travel to and from the World Pipe Band Championsip in Glasgow can easily exceed $50,000 for a band like NY Metro with more than 30 players and support staff.

In order to offset that cost, we ask for your support. Please make a donation and, most importantly, tell your friends and family about us.
