New Horizons is an educational program that provides entry points to music making for adults, including those with no musical experience at all and also those who were active in school music programs but have been inactive for a long period. Many adults would like an opportunity to learn music in a group setting similar to that offered in schools. New Horizons Music programs provide music instruction at all levels from beginner to advanced. New Horizons differs from traditional community bands, orchestras and choirs by offering programs to adults at all music levels from beginner to advanced. Many people who start in New Horizons go on to join other community bands, orchestras, choirs, and local music groups. New Horizons becomes an important part of the cultural life of a community by giving formal concerts, performances in shopping malls, retirement and nursing homes, and summer concerts in parks.
We also offer smaller ensembles such as Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion Ensembles. Private instrumental lessons are offered on most instruments.
