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.

Summer Youth Band Camp 2024

Massey High School

Join other young musicians from all over Auckland and the wider region for several days of music making.

Students receive coaching from professional musicians and get to choose elective activities like jazz band, composition and marching. All of this comes together for a public concert on the final evening. Students come away from this event with heaps of enthusiasm for playing music and greater confidence for returning to their school bands. 

The workshop is intended for Intermediate and High School aged musicians and is structured to cater to a wide range of music abilities. It is open to brass, woodwind, and percussion musicians playing at grade 2 level or above. 

This is a NON-RESIDENTIAL camp and the cost for the week is $100. Players will need to be dropped off and collected from camp each day and will not be allowed to leave the premises without permission. Participants will need to bring their own food and drink each day.
