TCC Community Band and Orchestra

About TCC Community Band & Orchestra

The TCC Community Band was founded in 1978 by Jerrold Lawless (1934-2016), a former music instructor and conductor.  The Community Orchestra was established three years later (1981).  For nearly four decades, both the Community Band and Orchestra have delighted local audiences with performances that range from classical collections to Broadway selections, and much more.

Many of our band and orchestra members are current or retired music school instructors, and some have non-music careers. A few members can claim they have contributed to the development of the band and orchestra since the very early days of the program, and they are joined each season by equally-talented new members. 

Both Band and Orchestra rehearsals are held at TCC's Southeast Campus PACE (VanTrease Performing Arts Center for Education). Twice each year our Community Band and Orchestra offer different concert programs.  They are open to the public, and also held at the PACE.
