The Hippocratic Oath Big Band, based in Calgary, is a semi-professional big band whose musicians are professionals in their own fields but take music seriously.
The Doctor Musicians Band was formed circa 1948 as a hobby band for the enjoyment of its physician players and whoever might be persuaded to listen. In 1953 their leader, Dr. Noel Smith, founded The Musical Medics which ran until his passing in 1964. They resurfaced in 1970 as The Hippocratic Oath Big Band. While many of the original 1970 members were doctors, over the years musicians from other professions have filled out the ranks and the whole band with their two dynamic vocalists loves to entertain.
The Valley Winds Big Band is part of the Canmore community music society Valley Winds Music Association. Under the co-direction of Mark DeJong and Carsten Rubeling, this non-auditioned big band enjoys playing many of the big band classics as well as more contemporary Latin, Jazz and Funk music. Their singer adds an extra element to their performances bringing a sophisticated sound and level of excitement for the entire audience to enjoy.
Cochrane’s very own Riverside Jazz directed by Adam Mailman enjoys exploring a variety of styles from classic Basie tunes to Uptown Funk. We are very excited that one of our newest members is adding his smooth vocals to our sound.
Cochrane Music Society is always growing, and if you’re interested in being a part of our jazz band, concert band or choir, contact us through the Contact page and come sit in on a rehearsal or two.
