The show we saw SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT ran about 2 hours including intermission. Their shows change frequently. Tickets were $40 each

Students and faculty of the College put on a great show. And I learned some things about the history of the area.

We're from the States and travel. Wife booked this and was concerned I might not enjoy it? A genuine treat for the soul!

Good review of the Scottish style. Wish it was a longer sample performance, as it was only about 25 minutes, and the explanation was hard to hear given there was no microphone for speaking.

We've been attending performances and events at the College of Piping for more than 15 years, and this year's production of 'Highland Storm' was the best ever!

After last year's 'Great Scot' fiasco, we were somewhat reluctant to return, but did anyway.

Fabulous performance, beautiful music throughout, often mixing elements of Island fiddle music with the sound of bagpipes - just as 'Highlanders' became 'Islanders', as they put it.

Learned quite a bit about Island history and the Scots on PEI, as a bonus.

Christine Gallant is a wonderful performer, with a beautiful voice and very talented, plays several musical instruments; also especially enjoyed Austin Trenholm on drums.

A truly classic concert, a beautiful production throughout.

Congratulations to the College of Piping!

Thoroughly enjoyed the performers and the video history. Was hoping to see step dancing fiddlers or step dancing singers.

Lovely show in a very comfy theatre. You get quite a show for a very adorable ticket. Pipers, highland dancing and step dancing, combined with live singing form a story over two hours. I learned a lot, and got a feel for the history of the Island. Well executed and would highly recommend!

This was a phenomenal performance - beautiful theatre with comfy seats and I don't think there is a bad seat in the entire theatre. The afternoon of our performance there was a power outage for three hours!!! They weren't sure if they were going to have to cancel the performance and we all had great hope the power would come back on. At 7:00 various performers came out to the parking lot where we were all waiting for the 7:30 performance and they put on a pre-show for us! They had two people playing the pipes, one on drums and various dancers. The pre-show was wonderful! Then as the drummer finished his performance, the lights miraculously came on and we could enter the building. The show started a bit late due to the power outage but it was well worth the wait. Best piping we have ever seen. The story was wonderful and magical - dancers were fantastic. Great show for everyone in the family!
