Message about New Horizon Band Fall 2020 
We are working with the current membership to find opportunities to connect this fall. We will reach out to members directly when opportunities to connect with our community are available.

History of the New Horizons Program

The New Horizons Program was started at the Eastman School of Music in 1991 and now has more than 100 programs in the United States and Canada. BW’s New Horizons offers adults the opportunity to learn to play a string, woodwind, brass or percussion instrument. It is perfect for adults who have never had the opportunity to play an instrument or for those who played during their school days but have not had the opportunity since.
