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!

***This website was last updated on 5/17/2021 to reflect the most up-to-date goings on with the TCB.

Now that COVID-19 restrictions are lessening, the band is now meeting for in-person rehearsals and has several concerts planned for the summer! We have resumed our small ensemble groups, such as the Thornton Community Jazz Lab, and Thornton Community Chamber Winds so be watching out Facebook and CONCERTS pages for dates and times!.

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.

Concert Season

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.
