About New Horizons Band
The New Horizons Band provides adults older than 50 with an opportunity to learn to play a band instrument with their peers. No previous musical experience is necessary. The ensemble is also open to those who already play an instrument but may have been away from music-making for many years. Since 1995, band members have presented hundreds of free performances at area nursing homes, senior centers, festivals, and community centers, bringing music to those who might not otherwise have access to such performances.
The Music Institute of Chicago’s Adult Studies Program welcomes anyone older than 18 and offers a wide selection of opportunities including private instruction, chamber music, group classes, musicianship, music appreciation, bands and orchestras. The faculty excels in adult education and provides a supportive environment. Beginners, returning students, and lifelong learners are welcome.
