…the Band

The Comox Valley Concert Band was formed in 1947 from the nucleus of the 62nd Anti-tank Battery Band under the direction of Harold Dixon.  It now performs at various events and locations in the Comox Valley usually 5 times per year including Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Remembrance day ceremonies in Cumberland, a winter concert and July 1st festivities in Courtenay.  Every week, between fifty and sixty musicians of all ages and backgrounds meet to work on repertoire of marches, band originals, orchestral transcriptions and popular music.

… rehearsals

Rehearsals are held on Tuesday nights from September to June, 7:00pm to 8:45pm currently at Comox United Church, Comox, BC. Beginning in January 2022 we hope to return to Mark Isfeld High School in the band room at 1551 Lerwick Rd., E. Courtenay, BC.
