Last year's Highland Storm was so wonderful it was a "must do" again this year while in PEI. Hats off to Director Ryan MacNeil and the dedicated Staff of The College of Piping and Performing Arts for giving us another outstanding Show ! Having arrived in Summerside on Aug. 5th, we were fortunate to see the last Show for the... More

We went to see the final performance of Celtic Thunder for 2014 on August the 6th at the outdoor theatre of The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts.. We very much enjoyed all of the performance. They had a good mix of music. I don't believe that I have ever heard the bagpipes play a Beatles song before! I... More

We went to the afternoon mini-show. It was interesting and they did explain the instruments etc. The mosquitos were biting even at 1:30 in the afternoon.

Someone local advised us that this was an expensive show if celtic music is what we were looking for, however we were glad to support the College with our admission fees. The music was excellent, with a good mix of styles and instruments. A beautiful soloist and good dancers, too.

Visited with grandson (11) and wife. Admission price is $5 person which supports the activities of the 'college'. They have mini-concerts three times a day during tourist season. You park, go into a gift shop area, pay admission and then are seated on padded wooden benches in an outdoor (covered) area with a stage. Four members/staff of the school come... More

The Highland Storm show is well done and very enjoyable. The performers are students at the school and do a very fine job. It was an entertaining evening.

This definitely was the highlight of our trip to PEI. A two hour concert of pipes and drums and fiddle with lots of dancing- all performed by the students and teachers of the College. Very smartly performed , very professional. The money from the concerts help to pay for the school. They also have a gift shop that sells everything... More

I can't use enough superlatives to describe the performance we just witnessed given by an incredibly talented group of young performers and their faculty. If you think all bagpipe music sounds alike wait till you hear "Let It Be" performed by pipers accompanying Scottish dancers. Or a Joni Mitchell song accompanied by a sweet set of pipes. That's not to... More
