Every summer for the last 14 years, some of the finest pipers and drummers in the world converge on Winchester, VA to hold a renowned summer school, instructing students of all ages in the art of Scottish Piping and Highland Drumming. As part of the Virginia Summer School, these instructors, along with invited performers, hold a recital for the public.
Featured pipers this year include the Principal of the National Piping Centre of Scotland, Roddy McLeod; multi-time world champion, Willie McCallum; as well as Canadian great Matt MacIsaac; and pipe major and pipe maker, Brian Donaldson. Our featured drummer is the most decorated Scottish snare drummer in history, Jim Kilpatrick. Featured dancers are the award winning Thistle Dancers of Alexandria VA.
Tickets are $20.00 ($10.00 for students). They can be acquired in one of three ways:
