Bagpipes and more with Piping Ace: Callum Armstrong
BAGPIPES AND MORE WITH ENGLISH PIPING ACE CALLUM ARMSTRONG
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17 AT 8PM
ST PETERS LUTHERAN CHURCH 
Callum Armstrong is an experimental piper who enjoys exploring the possibilities of the pipes. He studied recorder at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, where for three consecutive years he won the Beryl Maggs Award for recorder and, in his final year, was awarded the Silver Medal for Early Music.

Callum started experimenting with the aulos (ancient Greek shepherds pipe in 2015. His work developing reeds in an historically informed manner while collaborating with scholars has enabled him to forge his own playing technique and to break new ground reviving the aulos.  He is currently in the US to perform with Columbia Universitys production of Euripides Herakles, but when I learned that he would be in this country, I encourage him to come to our area to perform and teach a workshop for our local pipers.

Callums other recent projects include developing a polyphonic technique for double and triple smallpipes, collaborating with pipe maker Julian Goodacre to develop a chanter with a 3-octave range, and taking part in Nathaniel Gows Dance Band with Concerto Caledonia. He has played as a soloist with the London Philharmonic orchestra and appeared as the piper in Steven Speilbergs filmWarhorse. In 2014, Callum won the Ch√Ęteau dArs solo piping competition and returned in 2015 to win the Petite Formation competition with the cellist George Pasca.

He plays multiple kinds of pipes including Cornish pipes, Scottish Smallpipes both Single and Double by Julian Goodacre, Great Highland Bagpipes by Peter Henderson, and Borderpipes in A and D by Jon Swayne.  His concert will be a combination of many things aulos, recorders and several varieties of pipes.

Callum will be teaching an afternoon workshop from 3-5pm on melodic ornamentation and techniques for becoming more relaxed as you play.  Pre-registration is advisable, workshop is $25, or $40 for both workshop and concert.
