THE COLLEGE OF PIPING AND CELTIC PERFORMING ARTS OF CANADA

The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada, a registered Canadian charity and a non-profit organization, continues to provide a vibrant cultural and educational presence in the Maritimes. It was established in Summerside, Prince Edward Island in 1989 and has developed a world-class reputation as an international school of excellence in Highland bagpiping, Scottish-style snare drumming, Highland dancing, Island step dancing and it is the only year round school of its kind in North America.

During the summer, enjoy one of the Mini-Concerts - a demonstration and explanation of the Great Highland Bagpipe. Our performers will showcase their talents in piping, drumming, Highland Dance and step dance.

Throughout July and August, uplift your spirits and feel the exhilaration of Highland Storm - an ALL-NEW production of Celtic music and dance, involving the very best in Island talent! Featuring a cast of thirty, this high-energy show runs three nights a week, outdoors in our covered amphitheatre. With artistic and music direction provided by Ryan MacNeil, a world-renowned keyboarder, piper, bodhran player, tin whistler and member of the Barra MacNeil’s, this is the “must-see” show on PEI this summer!

Visitors will be captivated by the fast-paced feet of the Highland and step dancers, stirred by the sounds of the pipes and drums.
