Fountain Trust Pipe Band Plays at Indiana University Bloomington Commencement Ceremony
The Fountain Trust Pipe Band was honored with the opportunity to perform at the Indiana University, Bloomington Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 7. The band played in the ceremony officials at the beginning of the Commencement, and also played them out at the end of the Commencement. Video footage of the full ceremony may be found at the Indiana University broadcasting website here.
After a string of successful seasons, the Fountain Trust Pipe Band has set its sights on the World Pipe Band Championships for Grade 4A in August 2018. This upcoming 2016 competition season will be the first in our effort to continue to excel so we may be prepared to join other bands from across the world on Glasgow Green in two years' time. The Fountain Trust Pipe Band has already begun fundraising efforts over the course of this past autumn, and we are well on our way to making the dream of Scotland a reality.
This means we will carry the Indiana State Flag at every Indiana performance we go to in 2016. After multiple years of being one of very few competitive pipe bands in Indiana, and the only Indiana pipe band in Grade 3, we are thrilled to accept this honor! We love the state of Indiana, and wish to continue promoting the Scottish arts and contributing to the wonderful state we live in. Click Here to check us out on their website.
In an intense season during which every member went above and beyond the call of duty, we were overjoyed to come out triumphantly! We will take this and use it as motivation to work ever harder to constantly raise the bar of excellence.
