O Spring, Spring, wherefore art thou Spring?
March goes in like a lion and out like a bunch of lions that ate the lamb for lunch?! I'm starting to feel like a broken record but due to the freezing rain already falling and the snow and wind scheduled for this evening, all classes in Charlottetown and Summerside have been cancelled for this afternoon and evening. Please stay home, stay safe and keep your fingers and toes nimble by practicing!
Please don't forget that the deadline for the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada Post Secondary Scholarship is tomorrow! Please see your instructor for more information if you are interested! Good luck to all of those who apply!
Pipe Band flashmob in Australia
Here are a couple of videos that will warm your heart on this cold and dreary day. The first one is from Perth, Australia where a bunch of pipers and drummers performed a surprise flashmob to bring attention to the State Pipe Band Championships. This can be found using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtksAvk6myU&feature=youtu.be. The second video comes from the New Zealand Pipe Band Championships. It's called "Outside the Circle" and is set to Pharrell's song, Happy. Watch some of your favourite pipers and drummers strut their dancing stuff!
