The Beat Goes On Concert ~ June 1, 2019
New Horizons Band of Toronto is a music education and performance program for mature adults who wish to play a concert band instrument in a friendly group setting. Concert band instruments are: flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, euphonium, trombone, tuba, bells, xylophone, drums & many other percussion instruments. We offer band classes ranging from absolute beginner to advanced levels, conducted by experienced, professional music directors. The two-hour classes are held once per week in the daytime or evening. We also offer enrichment classes in jazz performance and music theory. All classes are held at 662 Victoria Park Ave (North-West corner of Victoria Park and Danforth Ave) immediately south of the Victoria Park subway and bus TTC station. For more information about our music program see About Us.
NHBT members perform regularly in the community in large and small ensembles. To ask a question or to have us perform at your event, submit a Contact Us form.
Being a “Super-ager”…
A New York Times article (December 2016) suggested that (re)learning to play a musical instrument will go a long way to keeping your brain as sharp as when you were 25! So, take up a challenging activity…master a musical instrument!
