Competition Season is in Full Swing!

The grade 3 band is off to a fantastic start for the 2016 competition season! In April they played at the Toronto Indoor competition taking first place in the medley. In early May they competed at the Ottawa Branch Indoor contest taking first in both the grade 3 medley and MSR contests. The end of May was the Kingston Scottish Festival where they again placed first in the grade 3 medley, and finally this past weekend in Georgetown the band placed first in the grade 3 MSR contest. What a start to the season!

Grade 3 band all smiles at the 2016 Kingston Scottish Festival!

We are also excited to once again have a grade 5 band. This year they competed at the Ottawa Indoor competition and the Kingston Scottish Festival. While they didn’t take home first prize we are immensely proud of them and how far they have come! Many of the members of the band have only been playing for a year or 2 so we are thrilled that they have progressed so much and are competition ready after such a short time. We are looking forward to seeing them at more competitions next summer.
