The goals of the WCCB 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.
Back on track
The Band resumed playing together March 1st. Full vaccination status is still required.
Keep an eye on the calendar under under Events for up-to-date schedule information.
Interested in joining us?
The Westshore Band is once again inviting members of other community bands in Greater Victoria to sit in with us over the summer to keep their "chops" in shape, starting June 14th. There will be a small fee this year: $5 per drop-in session or $25 for the entire summer. Please complete the Guest Form and submit it so we can add your data to our email lists.
Clarinets are the violin section of a concert band, so the more the merrier, we have lots of room, including space for a bass clarinet. A pair of trumpets and a pair of horns will help us cover every instrumental part and make for some really exciting sounds. More hands in the percussion section will, likewise, fill out the sound. If you want to be part of a fun, friendly and supportive group, come out and join us. 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. All the current Covid protocols apply.
