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 late teens to almost 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, Metchosin, View Royal, Esquimalt, Highlands and Sooke.
New members who play French horn, clarinet, alto or tenor sax, tuba, euphonium or percussion are welcome. We can also find room for an experienced bassoonist and flautist and a couple of trumpets. 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.
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.
The final rehearsal for 2018 will be December 11, with a performance December 18. Rehearsals will resume January 8, 2019.
Christmas Kettle Band
December 18 to 21, noon to 1 p.m., in front of the Langford Walmart store. All players, from any organization, are welcome to participate — the more, the merrier! Dress warmly; bring your band instrument and a stand; music will be provided.
This is an informal group with as many players as possible on each day. The people volunteering to work the kettle say the funds increase dramatically when we are there and the Salvation Army head office noticed an increase in receipts on the days we play.
