Burns Night

Greetings from Singapore!

What is your favourite Burns' poem?

If I should pick one, mine would be The Selkirk Grace.  It is simple, yet powerful enough for me to be grateful for what I have, not only on my plate, but things and people that surround me.

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.

Julius Li performs at Piping Recital

Star of the evening, Julius Li from McNally Memorial Pipe Band  dazzled the audience with a few good tunes at the recently concluded Piping Recital supported  by PBAS on Saturday 7 March 2015.





Mr Wallace, President of the PBAS writes:

Hi All,
Last night I was priveleged to attend a piping recital by Julius Li.
Julius has just returned from a session, at the college in Glasgow, where he has been working on Piobaireachd and light music.

It was enlightening to see a better understanding of rhythm and technique that Julius has achieved over the past few months and his recital (80 minutes) was of a very high standard. Along with this was a confident and light hearted explanation of all the music he played for us.
On a slightly different note, I was so pleased to see one of our Singaporean musicians take on a venture like this. Julius made all the arrangements himself and attracted a passionate audience of around 30. I am hoping this might be the start of a Piping Society in Singapore and I'll give my best support to Julius in instigating this.
Congratulations Julius!
Alan Wallace, President PBAS
