Our band has once again been awarded a very generous grant from the City of Fort Collins Fort Fund to support our 2022-2023 season. We want to thank the City Cultural Review Board for continued support of our unique community programs. Their efforts help make Fort Collins a special place.

New Horizons International Music Association is an international nonprofit music organization providing seniors and anyone over age 50 an opportunity to play in a band. Our local Northern Colorado group welcomes beginners (qualified instructors are available), and experienced musicians, past and present. Many members played an instrument in school, but had set it aside for many years. Others use the opportunity to try a new instrument. Our musical groups include: Concert Band, Intermediate (Red) Band, Swing Band, Dixieland Band, Woodwind Quartet, Flute Choir, Clarinet Choir, Saxophone Quartet, and Hand bell Choir.

We meet from September through early May with rehearsals on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Good Shepherd Church, 3429 N. Monroe Avenue, Loveland, CO 80538. Email: NorthernColorado.NHB@gmail.com for details to join the band.

THANK YOU!!!

Thanks to all who came out yesterday and watched the Northern Colorado New Horizons Band perform its Christmas Concert at Ridgeview Classical Schools in Fort Collins. It was wonderful to see such a large audience!

We wish you all a beautiful holiday season! Safe travels for those who are traveling, and we hope to see you again at our Winter Concert on Sunday, Feb 26, 2023, 3 p.m. also at Ridgeview Classical Schools.

If you are a current/former musician, or have always wanted to be a musician in a concert band, email us at NorthernColorado.NHB@gmail.org for more details on how to join.
