Notes from Home: Peter Deneen

Apr 7, 2020

Bagpipes are the original tool for social distancing, according to Peter Deneen. He's band director at Traverse City East Middle School and Central High School as well as the Pipe Major of the Grand Traverse Pipes and Drums.

Deneen joined Classical IPR via Zoom from his home in Traverse City to play a Welsh lullaby and two jigs.

He also explained how the human and feline residents of his house respond to his bagpipe playing. (Spoiler alert: they have no objections to staying more than six feet away from him.)

Hear his entire conversation with Classical IPR below, then check out the video of his home performance.
