Pipe Bands Australia extends best wishes to all our bands and members participating in the four performances of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo commencing in Sydney tomorrow evening.
We are delighted to have again provided assistance to REMT ahead of the international event's fourth visit to Australia and for what will be the largest every cast for the tattoo.
Pipers, drummers and drum majors have been in rehearsal in Sydney throughout the week in preparation for the performances.
The 2019 visit to Australia has provided additional opportunities for our bands and members with many taking up the REMT invitation to be part of a special massed band at each performance, leading representatives of clan associations into the arena before the arrival of the salute taker. The massed bands will be performing the official Pipe Bands Australia massed band music scores.
Among the bands accepting the invitation, is Warwick Thistle from Queensland that has been actively fundraising throughout the year to enable all band members to make the trip and share the experience the performance prelude.
