The City of Sarasota Pipe Band is under the direction of Pipe Major Kevin Wiegand. COSPB is a competition and performance bagpipe band with most of our members living in Sarasota, Florida. As of now, we have roughly 27 band members and COSPB continues to grow.
The mission of The City of Sarasota Pipe Band is to be the premier pipe band in the south... and beyond! We will not cut corners or settle for anything less.
We are fortunate to have very talented musicians who have yet to reach their true potential. Undoubtedly, continued hard work and practice will yield the results and objectives we expect to obtain.
Don't let this intense focus allow you to believe that we are not having a great time at the same time. We are having tons of fun and that's one of the band's greatest attributes!
Sarasota Florida has a predominant Scottish influence and we believe it should have a strong representative pipe band. Click here to read about Sarasota's Scottish History!
It is our goal to compete and place well when we plan to travel to Scotland to compete in the World Pipe Band Championships held annually in Glasgow!!!
These are very strong goals which will require a great deal of commitment from the band members and tremendous support from the community. The accomplishments of the band in the years to come will be a befitting tribute to the city and all of our supporters who have helped along the way.
