The goals of the band are to bring musicians with a wide variety of experience together and share in a creative and enjoyable musical endeavour. We currently have members ranging in age from early 20s to over 80.
The Westshore Community Concert Band is a volunteer community band for the Westshore, giving musicians with three or more years of experience an opportunity to share in a creative and enjoyable musical endeavour, and providing musical support for community events, especially in Colwood, Langford, Metchosin and View Royal.
Please help keep music alive in our community!
As with so many arts groups during the Covid-19 pandemic, The WCCB is still unable to perform publicly.
The annual CAFÉ SUITE fund-raiser was cancelled, and it seems unlikely that the band will be able to earn honoria by playing at local events for quite a while.
While we are frugal, we still have expenses (insurance, etc.) that must be met.
If you are able to contribute, the band members will be very appreciative of any donation you may make, large or small. Thank you!

Due to health concerns, rehearsals for the band have been suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic. We will re-evaluate the situation over the Summer.
New members who play French horn, clarinet, euphonium or percussion are welcome. We can also find room for an experienced bassoonist and flautist and one or two trumpets. If you have at least 3 years of playing experience you might like to attend a rehearsal to see how well you would fit into the group. For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
