A Band for All Seasons!

The Westwood Community Band is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

In 1980, the band director of Sansome School challenged the parents of his band students to form their own group, with the purpose of leading by example. A number of these parents responded and their on-going dedication, boosted by a steady input of new members, has blossomed into the Westwood Community Band. Some of those original parents are still enthusiastic members!

The Band's objectives are to play good music and offer musical entertainment to the wider community. In 2010/2011 the band celebrated its 30th Anniversary.

The Band welcomes adults, beginners through to accomplished musicians, who play woodwind, brass, or percussion instruments.

This is a friendly environment, new members are welcome to sit-in for a couple of nights with no commitment necessary. You will soon feel at home!
