West Winds, Band of the Bukit Batok Community Club

West Winds was formed in 1993 with the support of the People’s Association and Bukit Batok Community Club. The band was started with the vision to create a place where musicians in Singapore can gather for the love of band music. As a non-profit group, West Winds relies on the support of its patrons and supporters to sustain the band.

As a community band, West Winds is dedicated to bringing music to the public by promoting an awareness and appreciation of band music. The band is committed to offering opportunities for all to enjoy free musical performances, and  regularly holds free, non-ticketed concerts at their home ground, Bukit Batok Community Club. West Winds’ annual concerts have become a highlight in the local band scene calendar, often attracting mass bookings from secondary school bands. They have regularly collaborated with Esplanade to stage successful sold-out themed concerts such as the multimedia concert, The Enchanted World of Hayao Miyazaki in September 2014, which led to a second concert as part of a series in September 2015. Furthermore, the band also actively promotes band music at the school level. The West Winds Community Series is the band’s school outreach programme where her musicians visit a school to share their love and knowledge of music with the younger musicians. The culmination of the outreach programme is a joint performance by West Winds and the school band, which is open to the residents of Bukit Batok. This series offers the school musicians an opportunity to perform and learn from our musicians and, together with our performances, underlines the band’s desire to contribute to the local band music scene.
