SFUPB Burns Dinner
The Simon Fraser University Pipe Band will again be hosting the annual Robbie Burns Dinner and Silent Auction celebrating the life of the Scottish Bard. This fun-filled evening will feature performances by the 6-time World Champion Simon Fraser University Pipe Band and proceeds go towards the education of piping and drumming via the band’s youth program – the Robert Malcolm Memorial (RMM) Pipe Bands. The pipe band organization offers a range of instruction to youth and currently has bands competing in grade 5, 4, 3 and 2 as well as a beginner music program to help young musicians get a head start before deciding to take up the pipes or drums.
The Simon Fraser University Pipe Band Society is proud to have one of the largest and most extensive youth programs for piping and drumming in the world.
This past August saw the band, under Pipe Major Alan Bevan, earn a 5th place win on the World stage. As well, their Glasgow Concert Hall performance of Nous Somme Prets was a sold out event prior to the World Championships.
We hope you can join us for the dinner and help promote piping, drumming, and Scottish heritage while enjoying a night of good music, entertainment, and fun.
