Steven McWhirter, a 23-year-old corps drummer in SFU's Grade One pipe band, is the first corps drummer of an adult Grade One pipe band to win the World Solo Drumming title. McWhirter, of Northern Ireland, moves to Burnaby every spring and summer to play with the SFU Pipe Band. He was among 56 drummers competing for the coveted championship in the World Solo Drumming Championship in Belfast in October. The adult grade is the highest level in the international competition, which is so challenging that only eight different drummers have won the event in the last 30 years. In 2000, SFU Pipe Band lead drummer Reid Maxwell placed second.
