If you are on PEI during the summer you simply must go to see the performances held here. The talent, variety and energy of the performances is unsurpassed in my option. You are seated in a well protected open air theatre on benches so maybe bring a pillow for your tush but otherwise we were quite comfortable. We purchased seats... More

We went to the College to see one of their daily mini concerts. There were 3 young people (one dancer, one bag piper and one drummer) that spoke about each of their specific areas and then gave sample dances/songs and then did one sample all together. It was wonderful. It was very interesting to hear about the bag pipes as... More

There was 30 minutes of good piping which is enough even if you are Scottish. But if the schedule does not work it is worth a stop for the store! My daughter bought celtic earrings for $15, I bought an excellent bagpiping COWS t-shirt and a hilarious hat. Fun Scottish experience and it wasn't too dear. Worth a stop on... More

We really enjoyed the Highland Storm performance by the students and faculty at the College of Piping. The show included bagpiping, highland dancing, step dancing, and singing. This was a briskly paced show that moved from act to act seamlessly - obviously a well-rehearsed group. And it was a nice mix of traditional and contemporary music and styles. It's a... More

Great evening. My husband and I purchased our tickets for the evening show earlier in the day and came back in time to be entertained. What a great show. Very talented young people (and the faculty that participate as well). How can anyone not like hearing bag pipes and watching the energy of the dance. Lovely little town.

We attended an evening concert at the College of Piping in August. We thoroughly enjoyed the music and the dancing. The students and staff were energetic and did a great job.

We happened upon their summer show "Highland Storm" as we were passing through town on holidays. As we were staying the night we decided to take in the show, and we were greatly pleased. It was a wonderfully entertaining evening. Great job!

We went to the Highland Storm show. I wasn't sure about a whole bagpipe show but I must say it was amazing! The Highland and Step Dancing were incredible the musicians were extremely talented and it was put together into a great program. The numbers are arranged so that you're not overwhelmed by the loud bagpipes. I'm not sure I've... More

In the summer they have evening performances Monday through Thursday but unfortunately we were there on Friday. So we were only able to attend the mini performance. These occur at 11, 12 and 1. They last about 30+ miuntes and are an introduction to the bagpipes, drums and Celtic dancing. The performers are usually young people that are students at... More
