“Emmanuel College is delighted to be the major sponsor and home of The University of Queensland Pipe Band at Emmanuel College. Over the years the band has been an outstanding ambassador for the College at a large number of community events throughout Queensland and New South Wales. It is good that the quality of the band under the leadership of Pipe Major Andrew McCabe has matured to where they have gained recognition in both local and national competitions. We look forward to them enhancing their reputation internationally at the World Championships in 2013.”
