Welcome!

Our 13th season is finished! Now onto the the 14th!

Since COVID-19 restrictions have lessened, the Thornton Community Band was able to successfully meet for in-person rehearsals and perform three community concerts in May, June, and July of 2021! We have been also able to continue with our small ensemble groups, such as the Thornton Community Jazz Lab, and Thornton Community Chamber Winds by holding rehearsals and concerts for both as well! 

Stay tuned for this spot for more news on our upcoming 14th season starting in September. Be watching our Facebook and CONCERTS pages for dates and times!

Who are we? – The Thornton Community Band continues to be active in Thornton, Colorado and surrounding communities to provide a destination for musicians to make music and friendships, all the while having a good time. We take our COVID-19 safety precautions seriously to ensure that they are being followed. To read more regarding the safety guidelines and procedures that we have implemented, please click here!

Concert Season

The TCB plays four major concerts (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer/Fourth of July) a year with the season starting in September (usually the second Thursday in Sept) and ending in July.

Additionally, several minor (but still just as important) concerts are spread throughout the concert season including: Thornton Winterfest, Thornton Twist and Shout Summer Concert Series, Highlands Ranch Band Festival, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Relief Walk, Balfour Sr. Assisted Living Winter Holiday, “Pop-up” concerts, and assorted summer concerts.
