Pibroch Network

Pibroch Network

;

We are the team responsible for developments at pibroch.net. An endowment fund, gifted to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2022, charges us to foster artistic vigour and innovation in classical Scottish piping and to serve the whole pibroch ecosystem in perpetuity.
Our long-term objective is to see a world in which…  
Outreach: Schoolchildren encounter pibroch in the classroom, eliciting a WOW experience; the connections between places and pibrochs are known to locals and discovered by visitors, enriching cultural life.  
Listeners: Players are booked by music festivals and concert halls regularly; several YouTube videos of pibroch have over a million views.
CommissioningNew pibrochs and new ways of presenting old pibrochs are commissioned annually and toured internationally, keeping this cultural inheritance vibrant and engaging.
Competitions: Research and tradition are not in silos but integrated; the existing infrastructure of solo competitions invigorates the study and practice of pibroch because curiosity and courage are incentivised.
Conservatoires: It is possible to study the canntaireachd and performance of pibroch in several Higher Education institutions globally: pibroch exists inside rather than outside prestigious musical establishments.
