Forty Years of Making Music
Westwood Community Band
Notice: Due to covid-19 the Westwood Community Band is suspending practices until April 2020 at least. Check back for updates regarding when we will be able to resume practices.
The Westwood Community Band is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Our history – 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. We practice from September – June, Thursday nights at John Taylor Collegiate in St. James.
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! If you are considering joining us or if you would like to book Westwood Community Band to play at an event, please contact us.
