On Saturday 8th March Fettes College Pipes and Drums won the Junior A Scottish Pipe Band Championships!
The championships are designed to promote the playing of Pipes and Drums and each category provides a positive and encouraging environment for young musicians to compete, no matter their previous experience.
Fettes College has competed in the event since its inauguration in 2013 and have been proud 4th, 3rd and 2nd place winners over the years. We are also delighted to now be 1st place winners for three consecutive years! Since 2013 our students have expanded their involvement in the championships, with our Development Band now entering the Junior B category.
Cameron Drummond, Master in Charge of Pipes and Drums, told us:
“Their performance was excellent, and we were delighted to hear the rehearsals and preparations paying off on the big stage.”
Well done to everyone who took part, we can’t wait to hear your preparations for next year!
