Atlanta Wind Symphony

Over the course of more than two decades, the AWS has become internationally respected for its musical excellence, service to the community and contributions to music education. Their patriotic selections are a highlight of the Roswell Memorial Day Ceremony.

Chattahoochee Celtic Pipes and Drums

This band was formed by Rory Howe, with the Roswell Police Department approximately 12 years ago with the thought of being the first Law Enforcement agency in the state, to have a police pipe band. It is a paramilitary band, consisting of 12-16 individual pipers and drummers who all have the same love of the Scottish tradition and the skirl of the pipes, wearing the Chattahoochee tartan designed specifically for Roswell, by the Scottish Borders, during the ’96 Olympics. The award-winning band plays for numerous civic and community events, parades, and ceremonies, including the annual Roswell Memorial Day Ceremony. For additional information contact Rory Howe @ 770.640.4209.
