Westwinds Summer Program 2023

Westwinds Music Society is very excited about their Summer Program this year! They have many enthusiastic players and singers joining the program, but do have a few areas that could use a few more participants:

Concert band: alto sax, trumpet, French horn, euphonium, and percussion
Choir: tenor, baritone
Jazz: piano

Rehearsals start next week!

The choir will sing a variety of Canadiana-inspired repertoire (Bruce Cockburn, Ian Tyson, Gordon Lightfoot, Tamarack, etc).
Director: Erica Phare-Bergh

The concert band will play a variety of styles and pieces to keep your chops happy and your spirit bright!
Director: Sarah Drew

The jazz band will be offering a fun, light-hearted and relaxed experience. The grade level will range between 2-4, which we will sort out together as a band during our first rehearsal.
Director: Jeremy Legault

Spring Showcase Concert

Saturday, May 13 7pm
Bow Valley High School, Cochrane

We are SO excited about our upcoming Spring Showcase Concert, one of the main events for the Cochrane Music Society! This concert is a Multicultural Music Event with a focus on Reconciliation and building bridges with all cultures.

Our special guests, Knowledge Keeper Kyle Snow and Gina Onespot, will perform with Band on the Bow, merging their own songs and drumming with two classically composed pieces – “Cardinal Elements” and “Mother Earth – Spring”.  The concert band will also perform Latin American and Chinese composed pieces.

Choral Waves choir will also be joined by Kyle Snow and Gina Onespot in their Indigenous songs. The choir will round out their music with Ukrainian and Czech tunes.

Of course, the Riverside Jazz band music is a culture of its own!

The new Indigenous Centre, Wazin Îchinabi Ti, will raise their tipi on the grass outside Bow Valley High School in tribute to this reconciliation effort. Thanks also to Cochrane Foundation and Treasures For Your Home Society for their generous support!

Come and join in the fun and help us celebrate the music of a variety of cultures Saturday, May 13!
