Four Pipers in the Pines at the Park. Albuquerque & Four Corners Pipes and Drums is a bagpipe band that meets for two hours once a week in Los Alamos to practice Scottish bagpipe music. Currently, the musicians meet 6-8 p.m., Wednesdays at Bethlehem Lutheran Church on North Road in Los Alamos, but the public should always call to confirm the rehearsal schedule. Members are ages 10 and up and play at all music levels. New students are welcomed on bagpipes and drums (snare, tenor, bass) and people wishing to continue and improve their musical talent by playing in a full band. The band has about three or four gigs a year as a full band, pipes and drums, and they support individual members competing on the individual level also. The Albuquerque & Four Corners pipes and drums bagpipe band is committed to promoting the listening pleasure and ongoing education of bagpipe music to the community.
