In conjunction with the Terry McHugh Memorial Solo Piping Contest, the MWPBA is pleased to announce the creation of the Robert Irvine Piping Scholarship. The top three finishers at the May 2, 2020 Chicago Finals in Grade 4 Jr. and Grade 3 events will receive online instruction from some of the top pipers in the world.

Pipers must be an MWPBA registered soloist and under the age of 18 as of January 1, 2020 to be eligible for the scholarship.

First place will receive 4 lessons, Second place will receive 3 lessons and Third place will receive 2 lessons. Among the instructors agreeing to participate in this program are Callum Beaumont, Bruce Gandy, Jack Lee, Ken Eller, Willie McCallum and Bob Worrall.

Registration is now open for the Kansas City (January 16), Alma (March 28), St. Paul (March 28) and Milwaukee (April 4) Regional Qualifying events. 

We hope to see a large entry for the Regionals and are looking forward to presenting the Scholarships on May 2nd.
