The college offers visitors great concert opportunities all summer long as well as a nice gift shop with lots of hard to find recordings highlighting this noble art.

What a great way to spend an evening. Loved the bagpipes and all the wonderful dancing, singing and combinations of all. If you can, go, as they use admission to support the Piping College.

On July 12/16 I had the pleasure of attending Highland Storm - the incredible show at The College of Piping in Summerside PEI. The quality of this show is amazing - music, singing and dancing from beginning to end. The bagpiping left me speechless. Hats off to all performers in the show with a special salute to James and Kylie... More

My wife and I first attended one of the mini-concerts in the afternoon. Three talented teenagers demonstrated the bagpipes, snare drum, and dancing. It was great to see that the younger people of PEI are very passionate about maintaining their Celtic heritage. That evening, we returned for the Highland Storm show. I wondered beforehand just how much you can really... More

We were unable to see Highland Storm, but did attend a "mini concert," and we loved it. We were the only people in the audience, which was interesting- it was quite loud- but the high school aged performers were knowledgeable, talented, and quite professional. We enjoyed some fabulous music and dance at a good price.

Fantastic!!! New choreography and costumes... great show. Third year visiting Summerside and the College of Piping is always a must stop. Highland Storm performance is excellent. Great way to spend an evening, the program is packed full of music and dancing.

My family of four attended one of the mini-concerts during the day. For $7 you can't beat it. So impressed were we, that my son and I returned to see the "Highland Storm" the same night. We loved it! The performers are really talented, and the show highly original and professionally produced; comparable to anything I have seen in the... More
