Pipes & Drums Festival 2012 - 1 Dec

Sounds of Scottish bagpipes and drums resounded from the Grand Lawn at West Coast Park early on the morning of 1 December 2012.   This event commemorates the 10th Anniversary of the BB Pipes & Drums Festival.  A total of 73 Boys and 15 Miniature Bands from 12 BB Companies (5th, 11th, 12BR, 12I, 18th, 19th, 27th, 40th, 42J, 58th, 60th and 94th) as well as members from the Malaysian Pipe Band Club and the Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band competed in the Solo Pipe Bands and Miniature Bands categories.

 

  

 

The Miniature Bands competition commenced in the afternoon, where our bands performed marches and medley pieces. Passers-by and supporters of the Boys were treated to a lovely performance orchestrated by the lively drum beats and melodious bagpipe tunes.

 

 

 

 

In the evening, the Singapore St Andrew’s Society Country Dancers dazzled the crowd with their beautiful dresses and traditional Scottish dance. The participating bands of the competition also grouped together to execute a mass band display for the audience.

 

 

 

We were honoured to have Assistant Professor Eugene Tan Kheng Boon, Nominated Member of Parliament, as our Guest-of-Honour for this year. We are also privileged to have Ms Patricia Forrester, Chieftain of the Singapore St Andrew’s Society, grace the occasion.
