was founded in November 2005 and offers its members a wide variety

of music to perform for all listeners to enjoy. All members are Village residents

and come from varied backgrounds with one commonality, instrumental music

making in their retirement years.

The Villages New Horizons Band continues to support the philosophy of the

international program of The New Horizons International Music Association

which encourages and supports senior citizens involvement in instrumental music programs. NHB membership includes the Association of Concert Bands and the

Bands Of The Villages. The NHB supports various area groups and organizations through their donations derived from proceeds from our concerts.

Attendance Policy for playing a Concert

Attendances at

rehearsals are expectations for

a bandsman to play

in the concerts.

There could be cogent reasons that prohibit attendance at every rehearsal.

However, the band’s

policy to play in a concert include attendance of the

last four rehearsals 

plus the dress


If there are unusual

circumstances that

preclude meeting

the attendance requirements,

a member may

contact the Director

in an effort to obtain

an exemption.

Section leaders are

to be informed about

any granted

exemptions of

the policy.
