Have you ever dreamed of playing in a band?

Adult trumpet, sax and trombone players in Tri-County New Horizons Band

Whether you've never picked up an instrument, or haven't played since high school, we invite you to experience the fun of making music with a small group of adults just like yourself. We play in a concert band setting, and also split into smaller ensembles. No experience is necessary. Many of our members had not played before joining. This is a great opportunity for seniors to try something new, but we have no age limitations to join.

 

Who are we?

Tom Miller, always a teacher

We come from all walks of life. Our group ranges in age from our 40s to our 90s. We all share a desire to learn and grow musically. Some of us picked up our first instrument the day we joined the band. Others dusted off old instruments they had been saving since high school or college.

Players who have mastered one instrument find our band a low-pressure place to learn a new one. The main goal is to have fun.

 

What do we do?

Saxophone lessons at Tri-County New Horizons Band

We meet twice a week for full band rehearsals, working on a variety of music from jazzy to show tunes, from Mozart to modern day concert band compositions. We try to make it a mix that is easy enough for the beginning players in the group, while challenging the more experienced members. Even better, we help each other along the way.

When we are ready to share, we go out into the community and entertain at senior living facilities, churches or wherever we are requested. We also have had great experiences playing alongside school band classes.
