The Band on the Bow concert band started with a small group of parents who were watching their children have so much fun in their school band program that they said, “We want to do this!” So this small group formed the Cochrane Music Society, encouraged more to join, and here we are, all these years later, still having fun.
The band currently has about 40 members but there is room to grow. We have a wide range of instruments including percussion, trombones, tubas, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, trumpets, clarinets, flutes, and French horns. We would love to have the less common instruments such as bassoon and oboe.
Band on the Bow rehearsals
Under the direction of Adam Mailman:

Bow Valley High School Music Room
Level of Music
Band on the Bow plays music at Grade 3.5-5 level which suits many players in the Cochrane community. Adults who have little or no musical experience or wish to learn a new instrument are encouraged to talk to us about finding outside musical instruction. Once you have studied the instrument and can read our level of music we’ll be delighted to have you play with us.
