Callum Harper has big day at London, Ont., contest

London, Ontario – May 5, 2012 – The first sanctioned PPBSO Champion Supreme event of 2012 took place here as part of the large Kiwanis Music Festival. The event was organized by the PPBSO’s Western Branch and featured a full slate of amateur solo events in the morning and a small mini-band contest in the afternoon.  The contest was open to non-members of the PPBSO or affiliates to compete, but only members are eligible for Champion Supreme points. In addition to PPBSO scoresheets, competitors received feedback from the adjudicator after each event.

Callum Harper was most successful, with three firsts and a third in the top-level amateur piping events.
