The 78th Highlanders (Halifax Citadel) Pipe Band is a non-profit, charitable organization whose members perform and instruct the musical arts of the Highland bagpipe, snare drum and other related instruments. The band has been in existence, under different names, since the 1930s and currently has approximately 60 pipers and drummers playing at the Grade 3 and Grade 1 level.

Help the current Grade 1 band travel to Glasgow, Scotland to compete at the World Pipe Band Championships. The cost to get our 40+ member band to Glasgow is nearing 100,000 dollars, most of which has to come from the pockets of the members with no way to remunerate the costs. Playing in a premier pipe band is a full time job without the salary so we are asking for any help we can get in order to cut down on costs for the members. The $10,000 goal would be to help with room & board, travel to and from the games once in Scotland, and other various costs the band and members will incur.

The 78th Halifax band comes from Nova Scotia, an area that is rich with musical style. We would love your help to let us showcase our ability on the world stage.

Thank you all in advance for your support.
