This 21st season starts on September 4 & 5, 2019 and runs to late May with weeknight rehearsals at Bow Valley High School. Each year is divided into two sessions – you can start with us in September or in January.

For all the 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 where we also collect donations to the Cochrane Activettes Food Bank. Band on the Bow and Choral Waves participate and earn high honors at band and choral festivals. Riverside Jazz hosts its annual Jazz Night in the spring. This is a real crowd-pleaser and tickets sell quickly! “RJ” is often invited to peform at other events as well.
