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 18 to 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, View Royal, Esquimalt, Highlands, Metchosin, and Sooke.

The Westshore Community Concert Band is a group member of the West Shore Arts Council.
