The Greater Victoria Concert Band is a registered non-profit community organization. We are supported by musicians of all ages, trades, professions, and skill levels who participate in three musical ensembles. The band performs 10 – 12 fabulous concerts a season throughout Victoria and the surrounding area.
The purpose of the band is to provide music of many types and styles to the community, while providing an environment where musicians can gather to enjoy playing music, to improve their musical skill and to promote lifelong involvement in music. (…and we like to have fun!)
To achieve these goals, the band offers musicians opportunity to participate in any of the four ensembles appropriate to their skill level. The Senior Concert Band, adult Junior Band and Intermediate Band all participate in public performances throughout the year. The Novice Band offers adults an opportunity to learn how to read music and to play the instrument of their choice.
The Greater Victoria Concert Band practices every Wednesday night (September-June) at Esquimalt Secondary School, 847 Colville St. Please come and listen to one of our concerts and perhaps you’d like to dig out your instrument and come and join us?!
