ANZAC Day Commemoration 2020

ANZAC Day was a beautiful still morning in Melbourne with stunning red skies over the bay. Although the Dawn Service at the Shrine was not open to the public, many in the community took the opportunity to remember those who gave their lives and served their country and local musicians performed the Last Post .

Many of our pipers and drummers performed at 11am and a wonderful selection of performances has been posted on the Pipe Bands Australia facebook page.

Thankyou to teaching staff Lincoln, Dan, John and the over 60 Haileybury Pipes & Drums band members who prepared a special video featuring over 60 students recorded in social isolation, and they have asked we share this with the Victorian Pipe Band community as part of their commemoration of ANZAC Day.

Thank you also to all our pipers and drummers who registered via the Pipe Bands Australia website and facebook page and sent in photos and videos of their performances. We encourage all members to share their performances on ANZAC Day online via Pipe Bands Australia as per the advertised process. Many photographs have already been added to thePipe Bands Australia special online gallery recording the amazing tribute by pipers around Australia and more will be uploaded in coming days.
