New Goals!

We are proud to say that we reached our goal at the world pipe band championships in Glasgow. Today the Band is in very good condition to climb new goals. In the next months we will work hard on new tunes and we have planned some special things for you.

Stay tuned!

Worlds 2016

The pipe band season reaches its climax at the annual World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow. Bands from all over the globe (Orient, Oxident, Australia and America) meet up to give their best at the topmost Pipe Band competitions. A win at these competitions is one of the highest honours a Pipe Band can achieve.

In August 2016 the Swiss Midland Pipe Band will actively take part in this exceptional event.

The Band

From Edinburgh to Glasgow, from the stormy Shetland islands in the far north to the Southern Uplands in the south, pipe music is the musical pulse of Scotland. The Swiss Midland Pipe Band takes up this pulse and gives it a voice in Switzerland. Whether famous marches and slow airs such as Scotland the Brave and Amazing Grace or traditional Strathspeys and Reels, the band gives expression to the many facets of the Scottish bagpipes in their music.

The Pipe Band competitions are an extremely important part of the bagpipe culture in Scotland.  Not only do they serve as a means for bands to reflect on their own current standard, but also act as an incentive towards perfecting their musical prowess. To maintain their high musical standard, the Swiss Midland Pipe Band regularly takes part in national and international competitions. Evidence of their musical ability is reflected in their many successes over the years. They were Swiss Champions in 2004 and 2009, and currently hold the Swiss Vice-Champion title.
