Pipe Band Snares


The Lyon College Pipe Band preserves and celebrates the Scottish heritage roots that Lyon College has had since 1872. Our band is comprised of students, faculty, and staff of Lyon College, as well as volunteer musicians from the community. We perform at official college functions, community parades, and venues around the state of Arkansas. We also compete at festivals and games throughout the United States and abroad. Our performances create a unique atmosphere and memorable experience, both for those who've heard the pipes during their time as students at Lyon College and for those who hear the band for the first time. Practice makes perfect – we rehearse daily to improve our performance. Our band relies on having the best instruments and equipment to create the quality sound this band is known for.


The Lyon College Pipe Band needs more snare drums! Currently, we have 5 snare drummers but only 3 snare drums; the band can’t function without our drummers, and we want to ensure that every drummer has a drum. Sure, our bagpipes sound great, but without a tight drum line, we just don't sound the same. We are asking for your help. With $5,000, which is our project's goal, we can purchase 5 new snare drums. This would ensure that every drummer in the band would have a drum AND that they would have new drums.


When you think Lyon College, you almost instinctively think the Pipe Band. We are a living, breathing representation of the College. We want to bring recognition to Lyon. More important, we want to make Lyon College Alumni (you may be one!) proud of us. With your support, we know we can make you proud!
