New Horizons is an Eastman Community Music School program that provides musical experiences for adults, open to beginning and experienced musicians of all levels. There are no auditions. Members enjoy rehearsing, playing, singing and performing with others in bands, small ensembles, orchestras and/or a chorus.
Every year, the month of May is concert time for all of the New Horizons ensembles. Click here for a complete list of all concerts and then attend to support our musicians.
On March 15, as a tribute to the Ukranian people, the Full Band played the Ukranian National Anthem. Click here to listen.
While New Horizons music started in Rochester, it has spread to hundreds of other cities worldwide. The umbrella organization over all these individual programs is the New Horizons International Music Association.
One of the world's great music schools, ESM has a wide variety of musical degree programs but it also promotes music education in the larger community through its Community Music Department.
