University of Rochester
The New Horizons Program began in 1991 at the Eastman School of Music under the guidance of Roy Ernst, now Professor Emeritus from that school. Since that time, the idea has been adopted throughout the U. S. and in Canada, resulting in the forming of more than 100 organizations.
While New Horizons was designed in particular for senior adults, there is no minimum or maximum age or ability requirement. All are welcome, especially beginners. Members include those with little or no experience, those who have postponed participating in an ensemble due to career and family, and seasoned musicians. All agree that New Horizons is a community of music-makers flourishing in a non-competitive, collaborative, and supportive environment.
The Rochester (NY) program includes beginning, intermediate and advanced bands, a Big Band, beginning strings, full and string orchestras, a chorus, and several chamber ensembles.
The Rochester program is part of the New Horizons International Music Association (NHIMA), which offers benefits that include reduced rates at music camps for individual NHIMA members. For more information about NHIMA, go to www.newhorizonsmusic.org.
All concerts are free unless otherwise noted. All concerts listed are open to the public. Please note that all concerts are subject to change.
