Welcome to the Cochrane Music Society

~ a vibrant, dynamic component of Cochrane’s diverse musical community

Have you always wanted to:

  • play in a concert or jazz band
  • sing in a choir
  • refresh forgotten musical talent
  • have fun in a supportive group of adults?

If so, we have a place for you in our adult community concert band, choir or jazz band.


The program operates from September (starting this year on September 8!) to early June with evening rehearsals at Bow Valley High School. For details including rehearsal days and times, check the webpage for each ensemble. 



We love to perform! All ensembles entertain enthusiastic audiences at Christmas and Spring concerts each year with a donation to the Cochrane Activettes Food Bank or other charitable organization as admission. They also combine with BVHS music students in their annual Foodbank Benefit Concert. As well as these concerts, Riverside Jazz holds its annual Jazz Night. This is a real crowd-pleaser and tickets sell quickly!
