Quarter Three



Greetings, TBC members! This issue of our quarter newsletter wraps up our third quarter, in which we would like to thank all of our wonderful members and parents for their continuing support and participation. 


2018 Summer Parades

Join Tri-City Band Corps for our Summer Parades! This year, our Royal Regiment will be defending our 1st Place trophy against the World Class DCI Mandarins at the Rancho Cordova Fourth of July Parade (7/4), marching exciting tunes at the Salinas Colmo de Rodeo Parade, with a group bonding at Santa Cruz Boardwalk that same day's morning (7/14), and playing at California Great America's Performance in the Plaza, where you can hang out with us afterwards with a discount (7/29). Sign up for these performances here! This is a great opportunity to play fun music while earning service hours. You can hang out with friends and make new ones! Rehearsal info can be found on the sign up form. Registration deadline is May 1!

In addition, this summer, TBC will have summer clinics for percussion and guard on Saturday 5/16th, 5/ 23, 5/30, 6/7 6/21, and 6/28.

“I joined TBC in the middle of my sophomore year as an Irvington Recruitment Officer, and looking back, I never would have imagined how much TBC would have impacted my life. TBC has provided many opportunities for me to grow both as a leader and an individual allowing me to form meaningful connections with my peers and gain valuable leadership skills that were difficult to foster anywhere else.” -Executive Director of Cadet Regiment, Olivia Mendoza

2018 Cadet Program

This summer we will continue our TBC Cadet Regiment for Junior High students. This program will help students learn the fundamentals of marching so that they are highly prepared for marching band in high school. By offering this program to Jr. High students, we not only prepare them as individuals, but also help the high school program succeed in the fall band reviews. Our Cadet Regiment is open to all current (2017-2018 school year) 7th, and 8th grade students. 6th grade students in Advanced Elementary Band may join automatically, and others will be allowed to join with director approval. Students enrolling in Color Guard are exempt from the approval requirement. Registration and Cadet Program information can be found here!

Pasta Feed Fundraiser

Our biannual Pasta Feed was a huge success once again! Our attendees loved the delicious varieties of entrees and desserts, from the creamy alfredo and delectable pasta sauce to the cookies and pies. The fruit and milk tea was a big favorite at the feed as well. Overall, it was a great event for us to have, and we thank you for joining us and hope you can come out to our next feed in the future!

SoCal College Trip Tour

This quarter, TBC went on a trip to Southern California to visit colleges such as UCLA, USC, UCI, UCSD, Cal Poly, and UCSB. While on our trip, we had tons of fun playing on the beach, enjoying the best food down there, and visiting many TBC alumni at their respective colleges. Come out next year to join us on this tour!
