Symphonic

 

Symphonic Band
For the most experienced students, grades 9 - college, age 14 to 19.  There are currently a limited number of positions available at this level depending on instrument. Placement is based on musicianship and maturity and is at the discretion of the band director.

Symphonic Band plays a variety of music and often plays original compositions.  Working with composers such as Robert Buckley and Ralph Ford provide the musicians with great insight into how a piece of music is created.

The band plays two or three major concerts each year in addition to West Vancouver Remembrance Day, Community Day, Canada Day, Dundarave Christmas Tree Lighting and just about any civic event where music is required. 

Symphonic Band attends a three day retreat each September at Camp Squamish and often tours in the summer.  Tours are optional and are on a user pay basis.  Camp Squamish is included in registration fees.
