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 late teens to almost 80.

The Westshore Community Concert Band is a volunteer community band for the Westshore, giving musicians of all levels 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, View Royal, Esquimalt, Highlands and Sooke.

Instrumentalists wanted

New members who play French horn, clarinet, alto or tenor sax, euphonium or percussion are welcome. We can also find room for an experienced bassoonist and a couple of 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 or


Rehearsals take place at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, at The Forge church, 2612 Sooke Road. Please bring your own music stand if you have one, and a mug if you enjoy tea or coffee at the interval. See Venues for details about parking. See Events for a calendar of rehearsals and performances.
