Member Testimonials

Why did you join New Horizons and how have you found the experience so far?

Michael
trombone

"I wanted to relearn trombone for years.
I heard about Grand River New Horizons just as I retired.
The experience has been wonderful! I especially like the gigs.
They are a 'hoot', or should I say 'toot'."

Les
euphonium

"Soon after hearing of the start-up of Grand River New Horizons Music,
I was visiting grandchildren who are deeply involved with a number of
musical instruments and activities.
The thought occurred to me that I might attempt to revive old skills
that I hadn't used for over fifty years, and have some fun doing so.
Making music with the group has been stimulating and enjoyable."

Mary Jane
flute

"My big sister made me! She knew I would enjoy playing again and I have! It's a great group."

Evelyn
percussion

"I joined the group for health reasons because I had heard that playing music improves health. I started playing the oboe last year but decided to switch to percussion this year.
It's a challenge but I'm enjoying it immensely."

Ron

"I always wanted to make music and N.H. Band has enabled me.
Fantastic Experience/Great People/Great Leadership/Great Music"
