Want to join the Band?


Interested in playing with the Kelowna City Band?   We have 60+ members and are always interested in discovering proficient musicians. 



Individual practise is encouraged between rehearsals.  

The Kelowna Concert Band is a performing group of accomplished players.  There is no audition requirement at this time and anyone can join us at rehearsals.  Individual members are encouraged to practise between rehearsals as our music can be challenging.  

Permission of the section leader and conductor will be required before new players join us in concerts.  



When a smaller group is needed:

 Most of our performances involve the full group.  When a smaller band is required for special concerts or for playing opportunities when limited space is a factor,  the Conductor and section leaders will select players for participation in those events.

Our current Concert Band size:


6 Flutes

6 Clarinets

1 Bass Clarinets

1 Oboes

1 Bassoon

5 Alto Sax

2 Tenor Sax

1 Bari Sax

7 Trumpets

We rehearse every Wednesday evening at the Ukrainian Catholic Church Hall, 1091 Coronation Avenue (corner of Gordon Drive and Coronation Ave)  from 7:30 to 9:30.    

We start on time,  and end on time.    




There is an annual membership fee of $140.   Students $70.  

Fees help cover the cost of rehearsal space, music, storage, and other band expenses.
