About the Band

We are an intermediate level community wind ensemble.

We play a variety of genres and levels, from classical to jazz to show tunes to contemporary. 

Our History

In the spring of 1969 a group of West Vancouver residents met to consider the formation of an adult band as an extension of the existing West Vancouver Band(youth band). 

This resulted in the formation of the West Vancouver Adult Concert Band. 

The first rehearsal was held in the Irwin Park Elementary School band room at 8:30pm on May 6th, 1969. 

Today, the West Vancouver Adult Concert Band is going strong, rehearsing weekly and performing regularly.
