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 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.
Resumption of Band Activities
“Reboot 2021” took place Tuesday, October 12th. The faces of the gathered musicians displayed their pleasure at making music together again, even if they did have to sit six feet apart. To begin with, only returning members and persons who had previously contacted the conductor were admitted, and everyone displayed proof of complete vaccination against Covid-19.
We expect to be able to invite more players to join in the weeks ahead, barring any health directives that might prevent this.
Membership Application forms may be obtained from General Info under the Members tab. There is also a Health and Safety Protocol document to be completed. See the information letter that contains more details about changes from previous seasons.
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.
