Kansas City, Missouri - The recently upgraded Cameron & District Pipe Band of Kansas City took to the competition field in Itasca, Illinois (Chicago) on June 18, 2022, in its debut as a Grade 3 competition pipe band. Thirty one bands in various grades competed on the day in what has become the largest pipe band contest in the United States. Cameron & District performed its MSR and Medley, achieving an aggregate score of 3rd place out of five Grade 3 bands. The placing was ultimately decided with an MSR ensemble performance preference.
