Free Scottish Holiday Concert
The Stewart Tartan Pipes and Drums will present their 19th
Annual Free Holiday Scottish Concert on Sunday, December 8, 2012, starting at
3:00 PM at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Saratoga (13601 Saratoga Avenue,
Saratoga, California - corner of Fruitvale Ave & Saratoga Ave).
The concert features bagpipes & drums, Scottish ballads, and special guest
appearances by the Peninsula Scottish Fiddlers and the San Jose
School of Highland Dancing.
Families are welcome (and encouraged to come). Coffee, juice and shortbread
will be served following the concert.
"The band is a relaxed group of musicians, drawn together as much by
the camaraderie of the band as our shared interest in the music", said
Paul Olson, Drum Major. Current membership is twenty-five, with
experience ranging from one year to almost forty years. New pipers and drummers
are always welcome. The band practices in Saratoga, CA, on Tuesday
evenings. This is the band's second year with a Grade 5 competition band.
Other performances include a mix of parades, shows, birthdays, weddings and
special events, Disney Land, PGA's The President's Cup golf tournament,
Silicon Valley Open , AT&T park for the SF Giants, Oakland Raiders, Davies
Symphony, FaceBook and Mountain Winery with the Chieftains. The Holiday Concert
is the highlight of the season.
Donations gratefully accepted.
