March Gathering - March 11th, 2018

The March Gathering of the Bloomington Pipers' Society will take place on March 11, 2018!

In our first hour we'll be doing tune recaps and walking through two new tunes! The new tunes will be Minstrel Boy, and Kelly the Boy From Killane. Grade 1 piper and FTPB pipe sergeant Angus Martin will lead the tune walk-through session. This portion will run from 4:00PM to 5:00PM.

At 5:00PM, Dr. John Holcombe will be running a mini-workshop on the use of water manometers for blowing control and tone training. If you already have a water manometer, bring it alone! Otherwise, John will have 5 additional manometers available for use. This workshop is free.

Music will be provided for the tune session, and instructions and directions to build your own water manometer will be provided for the workshop.
