I would like to share this winning performance of our friends in Canada, Durham Regional Police Pipes & Drums, for winning Grade 4 at the recent Georgetown Highland Games.
What’s more special is that they have chosen their medley starter to be “Marching out St. George’s”, a tune that I’ve written back in 2012. This tune also won the 2nd prize for Australia Pipe Band Association Summer School tune writing contest.
Thanks Mike for sharing this video with me! I’m really honoured and your arrangement of this tune sounds fantastic!

Ever wondered how it’s like competing in a pipe band competition in Singapore? A hint would be - “Pipes were not made for this weather”
It was a hard fought competition, mainly against the weather. Playing in the extreme heat of probably 34 degrees with 100% humidity, for about 1.5 hrs inclusive of tuning time, certainly isn’t an easy feat. We’re thankful that every of our players stayed focus and put up a great sounding MSR and Medley.
Congrats to all the soloist and bands who have participated. To put yourself and your band up there for critique is a courage, and improvement is the only thing we strive for!
