SUMMERSIDE(PE) – May 2, 2012 – The Atlanticade Motorcycle Festival is very pleased to announce that The College of Piping & Celtic Performing Arts of Canada will be exposing their talents to both the public and participates during the 6th annual event being held from June 28th to July 2nd in Prince Edward Island.

The College of Piping & Celtic Performing Arts  took roots in Summerside back in 1980 and today has grown to be a premiere cultural tourism destination on PEI. A 600 seat outdoor amphitheatre has become an extension of the classroom where aspiring performers have the opportunity to showcase their talents to the public.

The College's student body now numbers about 350 students in addition to 200 summer school and workshop participants. There is a strong connection to PEI where 45% of the people have their origins in Scotland and 25% of Islanders are descended from settlers who came out of Ireland.

The highlight of the summer months at the College is the weekly showing of “Highland Storm” featuring a cast of over 30 who delight the audience with a high energy production of Celtic music and dance.

In fact “Highland Storm” only opens for the 2012 season on Tuesday – July 3rd but the College will put on a special performance to end of ATLANTICADE on Monday evening July 2nd at 7:30. In addition admission to this performance will only be $16 (as opposed to the normal $32) and ATLANTICADE VIP registered guests will receive free admission with the showing of their VIP braclet at the door.

Those attending the motorcycle festival will get a taste of what to expect as College performers will be involved in the Opening Ceremonies, the dinner runs to Slemon Park, the cultural performance on the main stage and the Canada Day Parade during July 1st celebrations.

“We are very pleased to be involved with Atlanticade and looking forward to meeting people from all over North America” says College executive director Karen Hatcher. “I can't wait to see all the motorcycles roll into our town. It should be a great event”.

Chairman Dale Hicks is equally excited to have the College members perform at various times throughout the event and says the July 2nd special performance will be a great way to finish of the five day festival. “For sure there will be a number of our participants still around on Monday evening so it will be a great way to relax and take some great entertainment on the final day”.
