Enjoy Music?

The GVCB has over 100 musicians, all working together to enjoy playing. We have musicians in our band from all walks of life - students, music teachers, engineers, lawyers, accountants, etc. We play in 10-12 concerts a year throughout the Capital Region and beyond.

The band offers you a chance to play with other musicians in any of our four skill levels. The Senior Level Concert Band, Intermediate Level Concert Band and Junior Level Band all participate in public performances throughout the year. The Novice Band can teach you how to read music and to play the instrument of your choice.

It's easy to join - Come to a rehearsal and listen in. Talk to our conductors to help you figure out which of our 4 bands is right for you.

Rehearsals are Wednesday nights at Esquimalt High School from September to June with exceptions for Christmas, Spring Break, etc.

Since 1978

The GVCB has been playing for over 30 years.

If you've been wondering if you should dust off that old instrument in your store room, the answer is YES! We have a band that plays at your level, from novice players to professional musicians.

Join us this year. You'll be glad you did.
