The Scott MacAulay Performing Arts Centre at the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada is excited to announce its signature summer show that promotes island culture, history, stories and songs. Highland Storm is an exhilarating evening of Celtic music and dance that will captivate the audience and transport them back to a pivotal time in PEI over 250 years ago, when three ships, the Annabella, the Edinburgh and the Falmouth, arrived having carried families from their homeland in Scotland to a new land with little more than the clothes on their backs. Highland Storm is the story of the Scots arriving on PEI and is a reimagining of their first year on the island.
The story is performed by The College of Piping’s instructors and students and featuring fiddler Gilbert Arsenault, vocalist Christine Gallant and is directed by Peter Gallant. Prepare to sit tight and hold on… there is a Storm coming! Highland Storm runs July 13, 20, 21, 27 and August 3, 4 5. The Scott MacAulay Performing Arts Centre is one of Canada’s best acoustic venues. It has a strong sense of community at its core when it comes to its stage promoting island schools, arts and culture. The Scott MacAulay Performing Arts Centre is very proud of its signature production, Highland Storm.
