Joining the band FAQ:

I do not live in Thornton, am I still able to join the group?

All musicians, no matter where you reside, are welcome to join our band! Our current members live throughout the greater Denver metro area.

Will I be required to pay a membership fee?

An annual membership fee of $100 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 and high school students.

This dues fee can be prorated out if the applicants apply after the first concert cycle in the fall.

Feel free to contact our Treasurer for more information

Does TCB have percussion equipment and a library of music?

Now that we have storage space, we have an almost fully stocked percussion section! 

**Percussionists: If you do have your own percussion equipment, feel free to bring it if you so choose.

We consolidated our library in our new rehearsal space (McAllister Park Building) and have many music library resources at our disposal and are always acquiring new music for our library.
