The PPBSO — the Pipers’ and Pipe Band Society of Ontario — administers piping, drumming and pipe band contest at various highland games throughout Ontario. Several of these annual summer competitions have special designations, including the North American Championship, the Canadian Championship and the Ontario Championship.
The Toronto Branch is one of several local PPBSO branches throughout Ontario. We hold monthly meetings from October through April at Moss Park Armoury in downtown Toronto. In addition to being a fun social gathering for pipers and drummers, our meetings provide opportunities to develop piping and drumming in our area.
We hold a Knockout contest for amateur pipers and drummers throughout the fall and winter months. We also run the Toronto Indoor Games, a full day of piping, drumming and band competitions, in the Spring. Our monthly meetings generally include a bagpipe recital, or occasionally recitals on other instruments, by prominent musicians.
