1912 Society Concert

As a proudly Scottish school, the Fettes College Pipe Band 1912 Society Concert is taken very seriously with the Fettes community out in force to support our performers.

The main act this year was Going Home composed by Mark Knopfler for the film Local Hero. Expertly performed by our students, the musical number portrays a story of strength and community at a time of peril for an isolated Scottish village.

The first half of the concert saw a record number of our Development Band players perform a series of classics which were much appreciated by the audience given their uproarious applause.

Following on from this, the current Scottish Schools Junior A Champions took to the stage, showcasing a wealth of musical talent from a variety of disciplines - electric and bass guitar, keyboard, pipes and drums.

From outstanding solos to strathspeys and jigs, the 1912 Concert was a spectacular showcase of talent and a perfect way to end the Autumn Term.
