Our home is in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. If you'd like to join us, please feel welcome to come to a rehearsal!
We usually rehearse at Killarney Secondary School, in the Band Room (A129) however, for July 6, 13, and 27 we will be in Glen Park (3999 Glen Drive, Vancouver) from 7:30 - 9:30 (weather permitting), and no rehearsals at all during August.
If you are new to the city and don't have your instrument, we may be able to help or refer you to local resources. We have a fairly full complement of percussion instruments including kit, timpani, vibraphone, congas etc.
We are a community band whose members have a wide variety of experience levels ranging from "developing" to professional. Our repertoire generally ranges from level 3 to 5, with performance material tending to average level 3.5 in difficulty. If you can only play the quarter notes you're still welcome, but we have material to challenge all players.
Please check the Calendar page for a full list of rehearsal and performance dates.
There will be no dues charged until September 2022.
All players are asked to arrive between 7 and 7:20 PM so that we can be seated and warmed up ready to start promptly at 7:30 PM. As you're no doubt aware, late arrivals can be quite disruptive. After contacting us, first time attendees need to arrive by 7 in order to receive a folder from the librarian.
We will be rehearsing at Glen Park (3999 Glen Dr, Vancouver, BC V5V 4T2) for the month of July, excepting July 20th. These will be weather-permitting rehearsals and families are welcome to come and listen. We'll be closed for August.
