The West City Concert Band is a West Auckland community wind band, consisting of volunteers who practice together weekly and perform at various events throughout Auckland. The band is made up of people of all ages, and has encouraged many people to renew their love of music and performing.

As schools are not always able to offer large scale band programs, West City has worked with the community to fill this gap and provide a concert band program for West Auckland youth. Our youth band comprises students from various West Auckland high schools and practices weekly during the school term.

The West City Jazz Orchestra is a semi-professional group of West City players who provide high quality jazz and big band music for events and festivals. Contact us for more information about rates and availability.
