Professional Video Messages from Chicago’s Premier Bagpiping Company

Our professional video messages can bring enjoyment, or simply let people know that they are being thought of, for a variety of occasions.

We have played over 50 Video Messages to date

All videos can be delivered to the customer through a link in an e-mail (due to the large size of the attachments). Some customers also choose to have Chicalba Bagpiping Services post the video directly to social media, tagging and linking to the customer or chosen recipient, for shorter messages.

These videos are perfect for delivering a greeting and some music to those who cannot access or enjoy a live performance. This can include people in remote areas and overseas, or people who are unable to leave their house or location for any reason. The communications can be sent for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Wedding Congratulations, Messages of Condolences for Funerals and Memorials, Graduation Congratulations and many more occasions. They can also be sent as a general message to let someone know you are thinking of them.
