Madison Pipes and Drums - Title Bar

Performance Calendar

Upcoming Events

The new piping season is starting, and it will be a busy year for us!


A small group played at the International Festival in the Overture Center on Saturday, February 25th, contributing Scottish music to the events.


Our next performance is the first parade of the season, at the Madison St. Patrick's Day Parade around the Capital Square on Sunday, March 12th. The parade usually kicks off at 1:30pm, but remember that early in the morning of March 12th is when Daylight Saving Time begins! Set your clocks ahead an hour so you don't miss the parade, and we recommend arriving early to get good parking!


While we have several parades and events early in the season, the band is also preparing for competitions at several Highland Games throughout the summer.

Rehearsals are Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 PM in the basement of the First Congregational Church on University Avenue.
