Western Band

The Western Band was established in March 1969 by Mrs. Hestia Abeysekara, with Christina Jacobs leading the band at that time. In 1985, it was renamed as the Senior Brass Band of Bishop’s College and became a fully-fledged Brass Band in 1997.

Divided by section, united in harmony. The senior brass band of Bishop’s College functions as both a marching band as well as a concert band performing at both indoor and outdoor events within and out of school. The brass band seek to recruit to and develop young talent while also bestowing key qualities such as, perseverance, persistence, steely determination and patience etc. Fifty two years since its inception, the legacy of the Western Band will endure, moulding the path of young instrumentalists into great composers.
