TBC’s winter percussion unit, Tri-City Percussion, is a WGI Independent Open Class percussion unit that will compete in events such as WGI Fresno regionals and Dayton and NCPA. This group of percussionists is taught by some of the top DCI techs and instructors. Don’t worry if you weren’t able to make it out to auditions last weekend! Tri-City Percussion is still looking for a couple Synthesizer, Bass, and Guitar players to join our cast for the 2019 winter season. Please reach out to us at tbc@tricitybandcorps.org for more info!
