It’s coming soon! Join your musical friends at the 14th Annual West Valley Winds Workshop held in beautiful Canmore March 1, 2, 2019!
The workshop runs two concert bands: Dolce (Grade 3-4) and Vivace (Grade 4.5-5).
The entire workshop (Friday evening and all day Saturday) will be held in full ensembles under the direction of our guest conductors, Dr. Wendy McCallum (Brandon University) and Dr. James Smart (University of Montana).
After the Friday evening sight reading session, everyone is invited to the Canmore Golf & Curling Club dining room for a closed party featuring our own jazz jam. Our rhythm section will lay down the beat and all are welcome to join in or simply listen and socialize with friends.
Saturday rehearsals will run from 8:30am to 4:00pm. Coffee breaks (with delicious snacks) are provided and everyone goes out to find lunch at any of the terrific Canmore eateries.
