Capital City Band of Tallahassee Community College continues the tradition of playing a Patriotic Concert at Westminster Oaks Retirement Community, Saturday, July 2, 2022 at 10:00 AM

Join the members of Capital City Band of Tallahassee Community College, led by TCC Director of Bands, Lisa M. Foltz, on Saturday, July 2, 2022 for our annual Patriotic Concert at the Maguire Center of Westminster Oaks. Admission is free and the concert is open to the public.

People of all ages, toddlers to age 100 and beyond, will enjoy this reflective and rousing concert! Tunes to be played include some perennial favorites such as Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever March” and “Armed Forces on Parade,” honoring our veterans. A new-to-the-band piano work by Charlotte Blake set for band by Frank Winterbottom called “That Tired Rag,” will also be performed. The audience will also be treated to works by composers with deep ties to Tallahassee, including former Florida State University Professor Charles “Charlie” Carter’s “State Fair Suite” and former FSU Marching Chief and retired United States Air Force Band arranger and composer Robert “Bob” Thurston’s “On Behalf of a Grateful Nation.” These are just some of the delightful and meaningful tunes you will hear at the concert as we celebrate Independence Day!

We welcome you to join us in the audience on Saturday, July 2, 2022 at 10 AM at Westminster Oaks Retirement Community’s Maguire Center, 4449 Meandering Way, Tallahassee, FL 32308. Come early to find parking and to claim your seat!

TCC Jazz Band is back!

Join us for our return to Turner Auditorium on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 7:00 PM!

In March 2020, sounds of jazz in the Tallahassee Community College Band Room fell silent. Those sounds, stunted by distance and lagging bandwidth, would only later be revived in individuals’ living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens as TCC Jazz Band rehearsed over Zoom for the entire 2020-2021 academic year. Then, on September 25, 2021, the band joyfully regathered in the Band Room for the first in-person rehearsal in over 18 months.

The last two months have been a time of rebuilding…a time of renewal and of revival. We’re still mourning the loss of two of our longtime friends and colleagues and the wife of one of our longtime members. (These losses were not related to band rehearsals.) We’ve welcomed five new members and one former member. We’ve practiced tunes we had only previously worked week after week utilizing keyboard accompaniment, instrumental recordings, and occasionally an individual player “unmuted,” over Zoom. We’ve brought back tunes we had nearly-concert ready when we were sent home 18 months ago. We’ve persevered. We’ve persisted. We’ve adjusted, and grown. And, the band is ready. We are gratefully ready to perform for you.

Be part of our community as we return to Turner Auditorium on Wednesday, October 18, 2021 at 7 PM. We need you, and we think you’ll find you needed us…and music…live music that feeds the soul and lifts your spirit.

Turner Auditorium is located at Tallahassee Community College in the Fine and Performing Arts Center (FPAC), which is between the Administration Building and the Communications and Humanities Building, 444 Appleyard Drive, Tallahassee, Florida, 32304; Free and ample parking is available in front of the FPAC. The concert is free for everyone to attend.

Our family-friendly concert will last about an hour.

Eagles Rise! Tallahassee Community College students Marcus Polzer (Baritone Saxophone) and Kate Curley (Trumpet) are two of the newest members of TCC Jazz Band.
TCC Jazz Band provides students an opportunity to build relationships with other students and community members, and to keep playing their instruments in college. TCC students Marcus Polzer (Baritone Saxophone), Kate Curley (Trumpet), and Maximus Figueras (Trumpet) [not pictured] joined TCC Jazz Band this fall. All three were standout musicians in their high-school jazz bands and in other ensembles.

The concert is free for everyone to attend, so bring your whole family, friends, coworkers, neighbors…you get the picture! We can’t wait to play for you! Lisa M. Foltz, TCC Director of Bands.

What we did this Fall 2020

Capital City Band of TCC and TCC Jazz Band have been hard at work and at play this semester during our Monday-night and Wednesday-night Zoom rehearsals, respectively.

While we miss being together on the Tallahassee Community College campus, we are grateful to be able to continue playing music and nurturing relationships online. We hope you enjoy these screenshots of a portion of our participating members.

From our homes to yours, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!
