Over one hundred community concert band members from Alberta and British Columbia and are gathering in Canmore for the 9th annual West Valley Winds Workshop. They will spend Friday evening and all day Saturday honing their skills and enhancing their musical interpretation under the direction of guest conductors, Craig Kirchhoff (University of Minnesota) and Dr. Rob Taylor (University of British Columbia).
The West Valley Winds Workshop is a joint project of the Valley Winds Music Association Concert Band (Canmore) and the Westwinds Music Society Wind Orchestra (Calgary) to provide their members an opportunity for intensive musical learning in a fun social setting. Opening the workshop to all community band members adds to the enjoyment. This popular workshop has grown to two concert bands at different musical levels to support the many musicians who are eager to experience the musical education, camaraderie and scenic setting of Canmore.
Come and enjoy this public concert performed by your talented community band members!
