Traveled as a couple, thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We got to see an amazing concert with the very talented students of the College. Well worth visiting if you are a fan of Celtic music.

This is a college performance, needs a little polish, but it is mostly students and they are learning. We did enjoy the show and learned a lot too. Piping is not easy and it is an impressive effort that goes into it. It is in...More

The performers in the Highland Storm show are primarily students attending the College of Piping in Summerside. The show was in a large tent which meant that only those in the front row could see the dancing footwork well. We were disappointed in that but...More

If you enjoy Celtic music then you will enjoy Highland Storm. Bagpipes, drums, Gaelic singing, highland dancing, step dancing and more! We loved this show.

Three generations enjoyed the show when we were on the Island earlier this month. If you enjoy bagpipes and highland dancing this is a "don't miss" experience.

We decided to go the night before and booked our tickets on line. We picked them up from the friendly staff and found some seats for our small clan. The show covers the full stage so just be aware of that when finding a seat....More

College is established and expanding with the addition of a new auditorium. They work hard to provide a wonderfully entertaining and educational evening. If you buy your ticket in the noon day you can attend an informative demonstration and update from the performers. Nice little...More

I got the info on the website. I would call them to confirm though as they changed the time on us (which worked to our favour) but hate to miss out. I bet fall is less frequent.

Ditto the last response! We went to a mini concert which gave us a nice taste of the music and dance as well as an explanation of the bagpipe and drum.
