The 12th Pipes & Drums Festival took place over 2 days on 4 and 5 December at Changkat Changi Secondary School for Soloists (Juniors and Seniors Categories) and The Cathay for both Soloists (Open Category) and Bands competitions. Over the two days, a total of 149 soloists (Juniors and Seniors Categories), 11 soloists (Open Category) and 11 Bands played their best tunes for the Adjudicators, Mr Greg Bassani and Mr Ian Lyons. It is our honour to have the adjudicators, both from Pipe Bands Australia Adjudication Panel, grade the participants.
This year, we are glad to have our friends from BBHK89th Company join the competition for the first time. It is always a pleasant experience getting to know our overseas friends through events such as this.
It is our privilege to have Mr Melvin Yong, Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC, grace the occasion as our Guest-of-Honour.
Medals for all winners (soloists and Pipeband) were given out by Mr Melvin Yong alongside our Brigade’s Vice President, Mr Vincent Tan at the prize presentation ceremony thereafter.
The winner for this year’s for the pipe band competition was awarded to the 12I Singapore Company (Element 2 was taken out of competition due to the heavy rain).
Congratulations to all winners and competitors for their participation. The 12th BB Pipes & Drums Festival would not have been successful without you!
