The Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch 3rd Battalion, the Royal Regiments of Scotland, and the Band of the Scots Guards

in Concert

February 9th, 2013

Detroit, Michigan

The Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch 3rd Battalion, the Royal Regiments of Scotland, and the Band of the Scots Guards are a tradition that (I probably don’t have to tell you) spans nearly three centuries. Their performance, here on our stage at 8 p.m., will be an emotional and majestic display of the history and music of a proud people.

We have special group rates available, and we would be happy to offer you preferred seating on early purchases. Additionally, we would be happy to make available to your group – at no charge – the use of one of our beautiful reception rooms for a pre-show gathering. It would be a lovely way to gather in anticipation of a memorable evening.

The Music Hall serves a mission of bringing people together through the sharing of our cultural performing arts traditions. I look forward to being in touch with you and we are excited to welcome you to the Theatre for this show!
