Under the age of 25? Live in Ontario? Play Pipes or Drums? Join The PPBSO’s Youth Pipe Band!

The Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario (PPBSO) is delighted to announce the creation of The Ontario Youth Pipe Band!


The Ontario Youth Pipe Band (OYPB)

This performance ensemble is meant to connect pipers and drummers (ages 25 years or younger) who live, perform or compete in the Province of Ontario. The Ontario Youth Pipe Band (OYPB) is a celebration of our young players, the future of the PPBSO, and our musical traditions.  


You don't need to travel - the band will meet virtually and will prepare via Zoom and training videos. The Ontario Youth Pipe Band is being run by two notable PPBSO members, professional players, and music educators - Tyler Bridge and Ross Davison. 


Pipers and Drummers who are 25 years old or younger are invited to fill out the following interest form - https://forms.gle/jyFNeaGSSQ8tWCCC6


The inaugural performance of the band will be at the closing ceremonies of the Georgetown Highland Games and will include the playing of "Amazing Grace" as the designated duty band for the event. The first iteration of the OYPB is meant to be accessible to players of all levels and the entrance requirements are aimed at allowing as many pipers and drummers as possible to participate. 


Please note that all players will need to bring their instrument and highland dress to participate (either personally owned or on loan from their home band or organisation.) The PPBSO’s Ontario Youth Pipe Band is unable to provide instruments or highland dress to players at this time.
