New Horizons Band/Orchestra

It’s never too late to renew your enthusiasm for music by learning to play a new instrument or dust off your old instrument and start playing again. New Horizons Band and Orchestra provides an opportunity for adults to make new friends and enjoy playing music together each week. If you wish to learn a new instrument, you will join the beginner class. You’ll join the advanced class if you already have experience playing an instrument. (If you can't see the video, click here) It’s Easy and Fun! As an adult you have advantages that will help you learn. If you played your instrument years ago, you will be amazed at how much you remember and how quickly you will be able to play again. If you have questions about your skill level, or about the class, please call the Director, Archie Rader, at 559.431.8793, or email him at Getting Started for New Members Please attend our informational meeting on August 31, 6:30-8:30 p.m., in Kremen Education Building, Room 140.
