Mission Statement

Tri-City Band Corps is a student-run 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose goal is to spread the love of music and music education through public performances. Our mission is to teach students to play and march in a marching band and to provide them with skills that would last a lifetime, like integrity, pride, teamwork, motivation, and leadership. In addition, since TBC was founded by and is still run by students, we provide leadership and teach students to be hands-on leaders in the community. We participate in several parades throughout the year such as the Festival of Lights Parade in Niles, the Festival of India Parade, the Fremont July 4th Parade, Alameda County Fair Parade and the Salinas Colmo Rodeo Parade. TBC has placed the last few years at the July 4th parade and has also won the Most Patriotic Spirit Award. It is the only marching band in Fremont outside of the school system and the only option for students who wish to have this type of performance opportunity

Program 1

Music Stand Replacement Program

TBC's music stands are worn out and are prone to spontaneously collapsing in the middle of music rehearsals. With this program, we hope to remedy the problem by purchasing new higher quality music stands that will be more sturdy and hold music without problems.

Program 2

Instrument Replacement Program

TBC is suffering from a sad lack of larger instruments that students do not personally own because of the large investment required. We are currently attempting to gather enough funding for students to use in rehearsals and parades. Examples of instruments to be bought are sousaphones, and various percussion instruments, because these are vital to the overall sound of the band and influence the quality of music we can play.

BIO

Madeline Zheng is a senior at Mission San Jose High. She plays the piano and the flute and approximately four notes on the clarinet, and she has performed as a marcher, a color guard member, and a drum major. Band geek? Maybe. But she’s so much more than that. In a nutshell, she loves music, travel, history, science, people, dogs, ice cream, and everything else lovable. She’s not quite sure what direction she’ll choose in the future, but she knows that whatever she does, she’ll work hard towards making the world a better place for all.
