Pipe Band Success

By Konrad Hanson | Posted: Friday April 9, 2021

Over the weekend of the 19/20th of March, Hunter Burgess performed as part of the John McGlashan College Pipe Band which competed at the RNZPBA National Pipe Band Championships.

Hunter's Pipe Band won best street march set medley.

This follows an already stellar season by the band where we won the Dugald MacKay Memorial Trophy for the best Grade 4 Pipe Corp (Otago Bands only). This is incredible, considering the grade 4 bands are open to anyone; the band came out on top of some adult bands! It was a great achievement, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their day.

If anyone is interested in learning the bagpipes, snare, tenor or bass drum, with the plan to join the John McGlashan Pipe Band, please contact Louis Davis ([email protected]) and he can put you into contact with some knowledgeable tutors. You don’t have to be a John McGlashan student to join the band, only a Dunedin school student. Boys and girls of all school ages are welcome to join and are currently competing members.
