Young musicians pipe up in Scotia-Glenville band

"Our mission in really twofold; the first part is to teach and to provide top quality education to young kids, and the second is to develop our students to the highest level of their ability," said Connor.

Connor said part of the way they are able to provide quality lessons is by bringing in world class professionals and conductors to hold workshops.

Lead pipe major Victoria O'Connor said the competition in Scotland was an experience she cannot put a price tag on. O'Connor, a junior at Scotia-Glenville High School, said she started playing the bagpipes at a young age and plans to continue playing after high school and even beyond college.

"Going to Scotland and competing on that level and then placing third was an invaluable experience. It was the first time we had traveled to Scotland to compete, and it was just amazing," said O'Connor.

In addition to the concert, the pipe band will hold an open house at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26, at the Scotia-Glenville Middle School. Anyone interested or who has questions can call 374-6034.""
