A few days ago we wrote about how we spent a few days recently on the campus of the University of Notre Dame and attended a home football game of the Fighting Irish.
Today, I thought I would provide some of the short videos of the University of Notre Dame Bagpipe Band taken on September 25, 2010.
As part of the game day activities on Saturday’s in the fall when there is a home football game, the Bagpipe Band plays a concert on the steps of the Main Administration building on campus. Yes, this is the building with the Golden Dome on top!
Now, for some reason the schedule we had been following for the various game day activities was out of sync with the Bagpipe Band because even though we arrived a few minutes before the scheduled 11:30 am start time, as you can see in this first video clip they had already begun to play.
Here is another clip of a different song.
I have to admit that I am biased in this regard. It was pretty cool to be hearing the bagpipes on the steps of the Golden Dome.
Sure, the University of Notre Dame was founded by Father Sorin and Holy Cross priests from France in 1842. Yet with the athletic teams having the nick name of the Fighting Irish, it was really nice to hear the bagpipes.
Here is another video clip of a song whose name I do not know yet it is a very familiar tune. If you know what it is please leave a comment and let me know.
And, lastly, here is the world famous Victory March played by the University of Notre Dame Bagpipe Band. I had never heard the Victory March played with bagpipes before.
If you ever get a chance to attend Game Day on a Saturday on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana do not miss the Notre Dame Bagpipe Band. They really add that something special to the entire day.
