We are currently looking for the following instruments to fill spots in the band’s roster:
- French Horn
- String Bass (Double Bass)
- Percussion (General)
- Drum Set
We request that applicants have at least a high school experience level in their instrument. We encourage all instrument types to apply. Some sections may be filled to capacity and applicants to these sections may be subject to be put on a waiting list until such accommodations can be made.
TCB rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Adams City High School. The band’s season runs from the second Thursday in September to July 4th.
**There are some practice/performance venues that require us to bring our own stands. Please ensure you have your own music stand ready to go!

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?
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 and high school students.
This dues fee can be prorated out if the applicants apply after the first concert cycle in the fall.
Does TCB have percussion equipment and a library of music?
We currently borrow the Adams City High School band percussion equipment and music stands.
We have many music library resources at our disposal and are always acquiring new music for our library.
Our long term goal is that we would like to purchase our own percussion equipment.
**Percussionists: If you do have your own percussion equipment, feel free to bring it if you so choose.
