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.
The Band is still unable to meet. We are monitoring progress of the pandemic and hoping that the situation will change by the Fall.
Play with us
New members who play French horn, clarinet, euphonium or percussion will be welcome when we resume meeting. We could also find room for an experienced bassoonist and a flautist. 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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

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!
