New Horizons Band
The Music Institute of Chicago invites you to join the New Horizons Band (NHB), an educational program founded at the Eastman School of Music and designed for adults ages 50 and up. The band rehearses on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and participants also receive a once weekly sectional. Members of Music Institute of Chicago's New Horizons Band find this experience to be enjoyable, healthful, musically and personally satisfying, and a wonderful opportunity for social interaction. Our New Horizons Band plays public concerts in MIC's historic Nichols Concert Hall and in local communities.
If you played an instrument earlier in life and are ready to take it up again, MIC can help you get back in shape quickly and recapture the excitement of playing music. If you have never played an instrument before, it's never too late to give it a try. MIC's highly experienced staff of professional musicians/teachers will guide you every step of the way from producing your first sounds, through learning to read music, to developing your technical skills to the very best of your ability. This is a terrific opportunity to engage in a low-stress physical and mental exercise, and to meet people and enjoy new experiences in a friendly and non-competitive atmosphere.
Please contact director, Paul Hefner for more information.
