The New Horizons Band in the Pines was organized in January 2008 with only 12 band members. Now with 40 musicians, their goal is to create an entry point to group music making for adult beginners, a comfortable re-entry point for adults who played music in school and would like to resume after long years of building careers and raising children, or who now play an instrument and would like to try another. Contact them to learn more about how you can join them in making music!

The New Horizons Band in the Pines will be performing as part of Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s “Bach’s Lunch” series.
