From the bold sounds of the pipes and drums, and the harmonious blending of brass, strings and percussion, to the poetic and lyrical words that complement them, The Pipes of Christmas is a festival for the soul. The concert features the music of Christmas accompanied by a selection of readings taken from the Celtic literature of Scotland, Ireland, and Wales.


 


The 2012 concerts will feature the World Premiere of two new musical works from Scottish composers Steve Gibb of Inverness, Scotland and James Ross of Wick, Scotland.

Proceeds from the concert benefit scholarships established with leading Celtic arts programs in the US, Canada and Scotland. If you cannot attend in person please consider making a donation. Your gift, however small, will make a difference in some young person's life and go a long way to keep the music of Scotland and Ireland alive.
