Joining the band FAQ
I do not live in Thornton, am I still able to join the group?
All instrumentalists, no matter where you reside, are welcome to join our organization. Our current members live throughout the greater Denver metro area.
When and where are rehearsals?
Rehearsals are held Thursdays from 7:00–9:00PM at the Adams City High School band room.
Will I be required to pay a membership fee?
Yes, an annual membership fee of $85 is required from all active musicians of the organization to help offset operating expenses. The annual membership fee is waived for full-time University students majoring in music and high school students on scholarship. If applicants apply after the first concert cycle in the fall, this fee can be prorated out to the appropriate amount.
I am interested in joining TCB; however, I have a few questions. May I speak with someone first?
We are happy to help and answer any questions you may have about the band! You can email us with any questions, and we strive to reply within 24–48 hours.
Does TCB have percussion equipment and a library of music?
We currently borrow the Adams City High School band percussion equipment and music stands, and we have many music library resources at our disposal. Over time, TCB expects to purchase its own equipment and build its own music library. If you do have your own instrument, such as snare, feel free to bring it if you so choose.
**There are some performance venues that require us to bring our own stands. Please ensure you have your own music stand.
