A Calgary tradition since 1968, Foothills Concert Band is first and foremost about playing music. While this may seem obvious, other bands make their primary focus education or socialising. While both those elements have a place in our band, our band is keen on making music with a high level of musicianship. Over the course of the year, we hope to grow as a group and as individual musicians.
We contribute to the community by playing numerous concerts in the Calgary area, including free concerts in extended care and assisted living facilities, as well as in public places like Heritage Park. We are also pursuing joint concerts with school groups and other community music organisations of a similar nature. “Serving the community through music” is our motto.
