The Lexington New Horizons Band is living proof that, when it comes to learning to play a musical instrument, it truly is “never too late.” The NHB concept, the result of a ground breaking music course at the University of Rochester’s (NY) Eastman School of Music more than 20 years ago. New Horizons bands have become popular performing ensembles in communities across the U.S., enticing adult musicians from beginners to professionals.
The LNHB is beginning its seventh year, and it is a part of the University of Kentucky School of Music Outreach Program. LNH Music has three different ensembles — the Concert Band, the Jazz Band, and the String Orchestra.
Learning music provides intellectual stimulation, can benefit emotional and physical well being, allows an outlet for creativity, and provides an opportunity for social involvement. The fall schedule is as follows:
Jazz Band: — 5-6 p.m. Mondays; Concert Band — 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesdays; String Orchestra — 10-11: 30 a.m. Saturdays.
The rehearsal venue is Johnson Elementary School (lower level), 123 E. Sixth Street, Lexington, KY.
