The New Horizons Concert and Jazz Bands are working hard in preparation for a summer concert to be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, July 1, in Singletary Center for the Fine Arts Recital Hall on the Univerity of Kentucky campus.
A lively program of swing, jazz, classical, Dixieland, and other styles is being rehearsed by the bands under the batons of NHB Co-Directors Christine and Joe Carucci.
This is the first year that the Lexington New Horizons program has offered a summer camp. More than 20 members in each band have practiced for a little more than a month, enjoying a lot of music-making, fellowship, and fun. Summer rehearsals have been held in the UK Fine Arts Building on Saturday mornings.
The NH Jazz Band has been rehearsing this past year and summer at the Mayfair Village on Tates Creeks Rd., which has graciously offered the band space for Tuesday evening rehearsals. In appreciation for this kindness, the Jazz Band will present a program of popular music from the “Big Band” era especially for Mayfair Village residents Tuesday, June 26, at 7 p.m.
