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 18 to 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, View Royal, Esquimalt, Highlands, Metchosin, and Sooke.

The Westshore Community Concert Band is a group member of the West Shore Arts Council.

Instrumentalists wanted

While some sections of the band are full, new members who play clarinet, trombone or percussion are welcome. We can also find room for an experienced bassoonist. 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 conductor@westshoreband.org or info@westshoreband.org.


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.

PLEASE NOTE: There will not be a rehearsal on Tuesday, October 25th so that the conductor and members may attend a performance by the Meridiem Wind Orchestra.

THANK YOU! to all the donors and volunteers who contributed to CAFÉ SUITE IX. We couldn't have done it without you.
