We are looking forward to entertaining you at our 7th annual Vienna Pipes Burns Supper on Saturday 27th January! Thanks to all the enthusiasts who snapped up the tickets so quickly.
As always we’ll have plenty of entertainment on offer. The pipe band will open the evening with a short performance at 20:00. Then we’ll have the traditional recitations of Burns’ poem “Address to a Haggis” before the haggis supper is served courtesy of the band’s own chef, Christian Holl. The Immortal Memory will be followed by a capella singing by the group Morning Dew, a performance of Irish Dance by the Shamrock Dance Company, and Ceilidh music from our old friends the Alastair band, led by violinist Alastair Edwards from the Shetland Islands.
All money raised from this event helps the band cover the costs of tuition, instruments, and equipment, including our teaching program for young learners. Many thanks to our sponsors who have generously donated raffle prizes: Bobby’s Foodstore, Potstill Whisky Store, House of Scotland, Dobibrennda distillery, and Karl Müllner. The first prize is a rare bottle of 19 year old Glenmorangie whisky, offered by Mr Colin Campbell of Vienna International School fame and Graeme Hood, founding member of the Vienna Pipes and Drums. Rainer Dobiasch, another founding member of the band distills his own Apfelschnapps under the name of “Dobibrennda” which you can also win if you purchase enough raffle tickets.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
