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.
Plans are afoot to resume rehearsals September 14 at 7:00 p.m. To begin with, only returning members and persons who have contacted the conductor will be admitted, and everyone must have been completely vaccinated against Covid-19.
Application forms may be obtained from General Info under the Members tab. See also the information letter that contains more details about changes from previous seasons.
A registration session is being planned for Tuesday, September 7th in the parking lot at The Forge Church. Players may turn in completed membership application forms, display proof of vaccination, pay dues and pick up their music folder. We hope this will streamline activities the following week.
Players must provide their own music stands. Wind and brass players must bring small towels and any other material necessary to capture and contain condensation from their instruments.
