The 9th Austrian Piping and Drumming Summer School

Band members are slowly recovering from a great night at the closing night’s concert in Burg Kreuzen, Niederösterreich. Several band members spent the whole week there, receiving top class tuition from some of the world’s best players and teachers: Willie McCallum, Stuart Liddell, John Angus Smith, Andreas Hambsch, Maik Reckziegel & Mark Wilson.

Vienna Pipes and Drums performed several sets on the castle esplanade just as a thunder and lightning storm broke. We were under a tent and the rain was warm though, which will probably not be the case in Scotland this summer when we compete in North Berwick, Bridge of Allan and Glasgow.

Our youngest member, Jake Beck, won the prize for the most improved player.

The Summer School was organised by Nina, Sylvia and Stephan – congratulation on yet another a well-run event! Looking forward to number 10!
