New Horizons Band is going to take a break until Fall to let the corona virus die down, and for NMSU to re-open buildings. This does mean that we will miss our last concert, but keep practicing! We will get information to everyone on when we will start up again.
We do have concert dates set in the recital hall for the 2020-2021 Season.
Brian is also looking at some exercises that we can all do to improve our skills at home.
The New Horizons Band provides an entry point for music making for adults, including those with no musical experience at all and also those who were active in school music programs but have been inactive for a long period.
