Registration in Cochrane Music Society is easy! If you are trying us out for the first time, we would love to have you attend a couple of rehearsals to meet us, play or sing with us, and get a feel for the level of music.

Rehearsals for the Fall Session begin:
Concert Band and Jazz Band:  Wednesday, September 4
Choir: Thursday, September 5  (This is a change. Thursday is our new rehearsal night.)

For the directors to develop the musical ability of the ensembles, and for all to enjoy the group experience, membership requires your personal commitment to practice at home and attend as many rehearsals and concerts as possible.

Rehearsal Times


     Band on the Bow    7:00 – 8:40 pm

Riverside Jazz       8:50 – 10:30pm


     Choral Waves         7:00 – 8:45 pm

All rehearsals take place at Bow Valley High School in Cochrane (about 20 minutes from the edge of Calgary).
