Almost one hundred community concert band members from Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan and are gathering in Canmore for the 11th 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 Dr. Darrin Oehlerking (University of Saskatchewan) and Dr. Chee Meng Low (University of Lethbridge).
The West Valley Winds Workshop, a joint project of the Valley Winds Music Association (Canmore) and the Westwinds Music Society (Calgary), is open to all community band members. 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.
We invite everyone to come and enjoy this public concert performed by your talented community band members!
