Oak Bay High School

Filled with music and story, this moving tribute resounds from the frontline to the homefront. Hear a first hand account drawn from real life letters. Our gift to the community, this annual concert is offered to parishes and Legions in Greater Victoria.

The College is proud to again partner with the The Band of the 5th (British Columbia) Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery and the District of Oak Bay for a public performance in support of the Military Family Resource Center and the Canadian Heritage Arts Society.


The Band of the 5th (British Columbia) Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery

The Band of the 5th (BC) Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery is a unit of the Primary Reserve of the Canadian Armed Forces and is the only Reserve brass-reed band on Vancouver Island. It has the distinction of being the oldest continually-operational military band west of Thunder Bay, Ontario, dating back to 1864. Its mandate is to provide musical support for military and state functions, to mount public performances, and generally to foster morale in military members and the civilian community. The band consists of Reservists, who are employed with the Canadian Armed Forces on a part-time basis, and Associates, who are civilians or military volunteers from the community who want to perform in a variety of settings not usually open to civilian ensembles. The Band rehearses Tuesday nights at Bay Street Armoury and is now recruiting advanced players of clarinet, trumpet, and trombone, in particular, but all other instruments, in general!
