Have you always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument, but thought it was too late to start? Have you been thinking about that instrument in the attic that you haven't taken out since high school?

The New Horizons Band of Stark and Summit Counties is having several open house events this month where you can visit with the band and talk to instructors and members about our goal of "Providing Life Enrichment Through Embracing Music."

It doesn't matter what your musical experience is, there are levels for everyone to enjoy in our concert, string, and jazz band programs. For more information, stop by during one of our Informational meetings at:
