Lions Club Event Centre
We have held so many concerts, Big Band Dances, and Jazz Nights. We have performed with exceptional success at band and choir festivals, Mitford Park Canada Day Celebration and private functions. We have sung on Town of Cochrane hay rides. We have frozen our instruments playing outside at Christmas at Heritage Park and our voices (and fingers and toes) singing at Cochrane Light Up. We have played under tarps in the rain (twice!) at Movie Night Under the Stars, and entertained in the sunshine at Cochrane Artwalk.
We have learned and laughed and loved music for 20 years! So many people have been part of Cochrane Music Society – each contributing to the ongoing success of this organization!
On Saturday, May 11, 2019, Cochrane Music Society will honour this milestone with our 20th Anniversary Celebration Concert where we will premiere a special composition created for all three ensembles together by former Bow Valley High School student, Andrew Ball. Andrew is a performer, recording artist, instructor, composer and arranger, and has toured with Michael Bernard Fitzgerald incorporating local orchestras, concert bands, marching bands, and choirs. His parents are present and past member of CMS and Andrew has played with the bands on occasion.
Following the concert, we will continue the party with cocktails with entertainment by our Alumni Jazz Combo, banquet and dance.
All current and past members, and everyone from Cochrane and the surrounding area, are invited to join us in celebrating the successful continuation of this society that is devoted to educating and enhancing the enjoyment of the arts for members and the community at large.
