The WCCB Mandate
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 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.
2022-2023 Season — 20th year of operation
The Band's summer period will end August 16th. There will be a three-week break to allow the librarians to prepare for the new season. Registration will take place Tuesday, September 6, 7:00 p.m., in the lower parking lot at The Forge Church, 2612 Sooke Road, Colwood, with rehearsals resuming the following Tuesday. Registration forms may be dowloaded from the General Info page. 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?
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. Another bassoon would be welcome. 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 have at least 3 years of playing experience and want to be part of a fun, friendly and supportive group, come out and join us. You might like to attend a rehearsal to see how well you would fit into the group. All the current Covid protocols apply.
