For the past several years, the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band organization has been honoured to lead the Vancouver Santa Claus Parade in early December in downtown Vancouver. With the cancellation of the Parade this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the organization wanted to continue to bring cheer to the community during these challenging times by letting people know that "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" with a bagpipe arrangement by band member Alastair Lee of the popular Christmas song.


SFU Pipe Band - Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Consistent with the pandemic lockdown restrictions, band members each recorded their pieces separately in their homes, and then they were combined together to produce the resulting audio track and video clip. The audio track is available on popular music streaming and download services and the video clip will be launched on the SFU Pipe Band's social media channels. In the absence of the Parade, the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band organization will be donating proceeds from the streaming and downloads of the audio track to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and the CKNW Kids’ Fund (the two charities identified by the Vancouver Santa Claus Parade to support) and we encourage people to also donate directly to support these two charities.
