For lovers of Scottish dancing and music this show is a must see. The performers are members of the staff and students at the college. It was a delight to see the younger members display their talents.

The talent was incredible. Islanders are extremely talented. This is a must and it's great as there are lots of show times to chose from during the day. I went to last of summers grand finale and my son and I were blown away by the sound.

We visited the gift shop (purchased a tin whistle and a bodhran) and enjoyed a 20 minute concert by 3 young performers (all around 15 years old). Highland dancing, piping and drumming, and an explanation of their instruments and dancing types. It was great.

Spent a week at the College to improve my bagpiping skills. Also attended Highland Storm, the College's show! It was fabulous.

What an excellent show! Nice mix of piping, singing and dancing, great way to spend a summer evening. How can anyone resist bagpipes?!A must-do in Summerside, even if you are not of Scottish heritage!

Love visiting the College of Piping. Disappointed that there were no games this year, but it was still a nice stop along the way. Hopefully they'll bring them back next year as it was the only reason we came that way previous years.

We saw the Highland Storm show at the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts in Summerside, PEI and loved it. I am not particularly a fan of bagpipes, but this show was so good that I don't hesitate to recommend it.

Went for the Celtic Storm show last night. Totally worth the ticket price of thirty dollars. The performers were talented and the show was polished. My favourite part was a piper soloist who was playing so fast by the end that the notes seemed to blend together. It's not just piping though. Celtic dancers, drummers, and singing as well. You...

We were late arriving for the 3:00 pm performance, but we stopped by anyway to see the college and hopefully catch the final moments of the performance. We were completely ignored by the several students or staff on hand even though we were the only visitors in the building. As this was the sole purpose of our traveling from Charlottetown... More
