Maps and directions to our rehearsals
Updated July 2023
Our band rehearsals are at 6:00 PM Tuesdays in the Don Airey Hall at Christ Presbyterian Church, 3115 Dryer Ave, Largo. Directions below. Contact us before driving out, to make sure practice is scheduled. We have fewer rehearsals in the summer months.
We also have a less formal chanter practice at 10:00 AM Thursdays at Taylor Park, Largo, usually in Shelter # 2. At this practice we focus on fundamentals, exercises, and learning new tunes. Everyone is welcome. If it's raining, colder than 55°F, or too hot, we move to the church hall. We have been meeting there this summer. Contact us before driving a long distance to make sure practice will be held.
Directions: To get to the church hall from the north or east, drive to East Bay Dr. and head west. East Bay changes to West Bay at the center of Largo. Continue another 2 miles and turn left at Indian Rocks Rd. Go about a mile and turn left on Dryer. Church is about 1/4 mile on the left.
