First practice back since early 2019.  Look at all those smiles! (And sore lips...)

On Monday, September 27th, the West Vancouver Concert Band resumed practices in the music room at the West Vancouver Community Centre.

All members or guests had to show proof of full vaccinations and to wear masks at all times except when seated and playing their instruments.  

All agreed that it was great to be back. 


About us

We are an intermediate level community wind ensemble.

We play a wide variety of genres from classical to jazz to show tunes to contemporary. 

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for adult amateur musicians (18+) to play, practice and perform in a friendly and supportive environment. 

We are always looking for new members or opportunities to play in the community. * 

We meet on Mondays, September to June between 8:00 - 9:45 pm, in the Band Room at the:

West Vancouver Community Centre, 

2121 Marine Drive 

West Vancouver, BC.

(*We are not looking for trumpets, at this time.

On May 6, 2019, the West Vancouver Adult Concert Band turned 50.

50th anniversary birthday cake

On May 16, 2022, our COVID delayed  50th  anniversary concert will be at the Kay Meek Arts Center in West Vancouver.  At this special concert, we will celebrate fifty continuous years of playing in West Vancouver.

Please mark your calendars for this event.  Everyone is welcome.  Come and renew old acquaintances.  Share old stories.  Meet Tom Parr, our lead trumpet and last playing charter member.  (He claims to have been only a toddler when he first joined.)

We are looking for old pictures and/or old stories of the band - especially from the early years.  And we are looking foreword to hearing from you.  Please drop us a line at:

Or, if you have the time and the inclination...come out and rejoin the band.  We would love to have you playing with us again for this 50th year!
