Description

The City of Regina Pipe Band [CRPB] has been Saskatchewan's champion pipe band since 1992. The band has competed successfully against North America's best Grade 2 bands, and has been in the prize list at Highland Games across North America and in Scotland. 

Band performances have included the Mid-Winter Celtic Festival, The Regina Folk Festival, The Glasgow International Piping Festival, the Regina Symphony’s annual outdoor concert, Regina Multicultural Council’s MOSAIC Festival, the Glasgow Pipes of Peace concert, and many others. 

The CRPB started a junior band program that was been adopted by the Conservatory of Performing Arts, University of Regina. The Saskatchewan Champion Grade 4 [2003. 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2014] CPA Pipe Band plays an integral role in training young pipers and drummers in Saskatchewan through weekly tuition, summer schools, and workshops.

The band is available for concert work, performances and recording, and we can provide soloists and small groups also.
