The Band Plays On!
The Thornton Community Band continues to be active in Thornton and surrounding communities to provide a destination for musicians to make music while ensuring that COVID-19 safety precautions are being followed. To read more regarding the safety guidelines and procedures that we have implemented, please click here!
Unfortunately during this time, current COVID-19 restrictions will not allow us to meet as a large ensemble since we are an 85+ member group. Not to fear though! There are playing opportunities where we are able to field our small concert band, Jazz Lab, Chamber Winds, and other small ensembles instead!
We encourage those who are interested in joining the band to still do so and we will work hard to get you playing ASAP!
Other exciting news is that we are rather excited to present our new conductor COL (Ret.) Thomas H. Palmatier! www.ThomasPalmatier.com Tom is quite excited to take the podium and we look forward to what he will bring to the group.
Be watching our Facebook and concert pages for upcoming events!
The TCB plays four major concerts (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer/Fourth of July) a year with the season starting in September 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.
