From the bold sounds of the pipes and drums, and the harmonious blending of brass, strings and percussion, to the poetic and lyrical words that complement them, all filling the beautiful Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, The Pipes Of Christmas is a festival for the soul. The concert features the music of Christmas accompanied by a selection of readings taken from the Celtic literature of Scotland, Ireland, and Wales.

Featured performers include James Robinson from the film Braveheart, Scottish Country Dance trio Local Hero (Paul Woodiel/fiddle, Christopher Layer/uilleann pipes and Susie Petrov/keyboard), the Solid Brass ensemble, Scottish harpist Jennifer Port, Gaelic singer Paul McCallum from the island of South Uist and the Kevin Ray Blandford Memorial Pipe Band of Redlands, CA.

Concertgoers will be the first to experience two world premieres by Scottish composers. "Sea of Tranquility" by James Ross of Wick, Scotland has been commissioned by the Clan Currie in memory of astronaut (and proud Scottish-American) Neil Armstrong.

"Balmoral Snow" by Steve Gibb, originally from Inverness, Scotland, celebrates the Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

The Pipes Of Christmas is made possible through the generous support of Edinburgh Napier University, Mercedes-Benz USA, the Classic Malts of Scotland and the Grand Summit Hotel.
