Police, Firefighters, and First Responders’ Mass Recommendation

“Mr. Chapman, who was recommended to me thru a mutual acquaintance, was invited to lead and end the procession in our Annual Blue Mass and recognition for Police officers, Firefighters and First Responders which was in October 2018 at St. James Catholic Church on Wabash in Chicago Illinois.

Our Mass was well attended and the sound of Amazing Grace thru the pipes was a memorable moment. Many pictures were taken and I think it was a first-time experience for some of our visitors.

It was a great service and Kevin’s presence added reverence and formality to our event.

I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Chapman to perform his skirling. ”

J. Kevin Chapman Testimonial for Bagpipes Presentation

“Kevin Chapman performed for us in early May of this year. We had a pretty good crowd, and everyone really enjoyed his performance. His explanation of the different types of bagpipes and their history was very interesting. He brought pipes and parts for us to look at while he explained what they did and how they were made. [He] even brought a kilt for the audience to pass around and inspect.

The best part of the presentation for me was the actual playing of the pipes. I could have listened to that for hours. He even gave the history of the hymn, “Amazing Grace,” before he performed it on the bagpipes.

All-in-all, an exceptional program. I highly recommend him.”
