THE VILLAGES NEW HORIZONS BAND


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


As we continue grow

in quality of 

performance and quantity of members

it is imperative to

have full attendance

at rehearsals. We all know that there are 

very good reasons

why people are not

able to attend every rehearsal and those reasons are respected; however, the following guidelines have been established to insure

the highest level of performance that we 

can possibly achieve.


It is expected you 

attend at least 1/2 of 

our rehearsals as well

as the dress rehearsal

in order to be able to perform at any 

Concert. If for some reason you are unable

to achieve this, you 

will still retain your membership in the 

Band, but will not perform at that particular Concert.


You know how much practice you need in order to play the 

music well, but keep 

in mind that the full group needs YOU! 

To achieve the proper blend and balance of 

the ensemble, it is necessary that you are at each rehearsal to contribute your part 

so the Director can make the necessary adjustments. 


If there are special circumstances in not being able to meet the above requirements please contact the Director and you will 

be notified of any exemption which 

might be granted.


I hope you understand and support the 

policies mentioned above while we 

continue to improve musically.
