About Valley Winds Music
Have you always wanted to play an instrument, sing or refresh forgotten music abilities, then the Valley Winds Music Association (VWMA) is a wonderful way to experience the joy of music and learning in our community
The VWMA has over 130 members and consists of three community musical groups – a concert band, choir and big band style jazz band. Located in the Canmore and Banff area of the Bow Valley in Alberta, Canada, the groups hold weekly rehearsals and periodic public performances throughout the fall, winter and spring.
The VWMA is celebrating 25 years supporting music in the Bow Valley. We are really excited about the 2019 anniversary celebrations. We are preparing special performances, including a gala concert in the spring, and anniversary events, such as a cultural exchange trip to Cuba in May.
This year we are encouraging younger musicians to join us, so that they can, under the expert guidance of our musical directors, build on the musicianship they developed during their schooldays.
We welcome you to join us NOW for a fun, relaxed, and rewarding musical experience!
