‘On the 23rd November 1919, a pipe band was formed to parade through the streets of Kirkwall to commemorate the Armistice of 1918. Appearing only in civilian clothes, this was the first public appearance of what was to become the Kirkwall City Pipe Band (KCPB). One hundred years later, Kirkwall City is now a thriving and sociable band of around 70 pipers and drummers, including both learners as well as established players, with members ranging from their teens to their 70s.’

'A small chamber choir that is based in Orkney, a group of islands to the north of Scotland. It was founded in 1988 by Neil Price for the purpose of performing any choral music for a choir of such a size that would challenge and stretch its abilities. Although the aim is to achieve high standards, the choir is run informally, never losing sight of the fact that its main purpose is to provide recreation for its members. The choir performs frequently throughout Orkney and especially in St Magnus Cathedral, a magnificent building constructed by the Vikings in 1137.'
