Councillor Carolyn Wilson said: “We are so proud of our young pipers and drummers and hope there will be a great turnout on Saturday so that everyone can show their support and congratulate the band members and tutors on their fantastic achievements.”
The band is tutored by Highland Council Music Instructors working for the Council's Instrumental Tuition Service and Music Development Officer.
Norman Bolton, Highland Council’s Music Development Officer said: "Come to Alness and hear for yourself how the hard work at weekly lessons and band practices has paid off when results like this are achieved. Learning to play a musical instrument gives young people so many additional skills and complements their broader education.”
