The BC Pipers’ Association would like to extend our sincere condolences to the family, friends, and bandmates of Brittany Lee Angeltvedt who passed away on August 26, 2018. Brittany brought passion and excitement to those around her, both within and outside of the pipe band world, and will be greatly missed.
Brittany was a long-time tenor drummer in the SFU Pipe Band, having won the World Championships with the band in both 2008 and 2009. Brittany was also formerly a member of the Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band that captured the Juvenile World Championships in 2003 and 2005. After promotion from the juvenile band, Brittany gave back to the organization as an instructor for many years.
