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!

Stay tuned for information regarding spring rehearsals and how you can join us!
