Springbank Big Band was formed in 1998 with the goal of playing music from the magical era of big bands that peaked in the 1940’s. More than 20 years later, the band is stronger than ever, not in the least because of the fun the members have playing music together and performing for a variety of audiences.
The Westwinds Gold Jazz North Ensemble has been the recipient of a number of Awards, including the Eric Friedenberg Trophy for most outstanding community jazz ensemble at the Alberta International Band Festival in 6 of the last 8 years. A highlight in the development of this ensemble was a trip to Cuba in 2010. Everyone is very excited about our upcoming experience in Cuba – beginning the day after Jazz Night!
The Westwinds Music Society is proud of it fantastic working relationship with the Cochrane Music Society and we are grateful for the opportunity to participate in Jazz Night at Killarney’s.
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 especially excited by the addition of our two new vocalists and our own music arranger!
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.
