Introducing the Donation Corner

The Donation Corner is a way to bring NHB fund raising activities to the attention of members, inactive members, and friends. After each fund raising campaign, we will post a list of cash donors, as well as those who have contributed their time.

The Donation Corner page is available throughout the year. To make a donation anytime, please complete the online donation form and mail your check to:

Please be assured that your thoughtful gift will contribute to our ongoing projects for the benefit of all members and our extended NHB community. Contributions ā€“ no matter how large or small ā€“ will go far to help us discover our harmonious new horizons.

Note: The Donation Corner link is available from the main menu or the Site Map. If your name does not appear in the donor list please email us.

JIM’S NEW ZOOM SCHEDULE!

Many of you have been communicating with me requesting additional Zoom contact. I have been working hard to accommodate everyone’s requests. The newest Zoom feature is called “Supervised Practice”. This feature is a form of private lessons but is focused on the preparation of the music that we are presently distributing. We will concentrate on the understanding of style, techniques, melodic and harmonic rhythm. Our staff must limit our teaching schedules to 30 hours a month so new Small Group sessions will be announced before June 29th.

OUR FIRST MAPS REHEARSAL IS A GO THIS THURSDAY AT 2:30!

Please review and follow our posted “Safety Rules” . You will be directed to a special parking area by Maps Volunteers. Please stay in your car until Jim signals you to approach the entrance. If you need assistance carrying your equipment we can provide a helping hand. Everyone must wear a mask. We will take your temperature and ask you three questions. If you have not received your “New Music” Connie will be the first stop at the “Library Table” however, please remember to bring chorales #2 and #5. Also please bring your copy of the “National Anthem”. You may us your cell phone to sign in and please remember to wear your NAME TAG! One of our Members will take you to your color coded seating area. Please do not open your cases or start warming up until instructed to do so. It will be in the low 80’s so please bring your own water bottle. I’m sure you will enjoy this first training session and playing together with your friends once again in an ensemble. If you have any questions please call or text Jim. 330.858.2045

LATEST NEW HORIZONS BOARD APPROVED SCHEDULE AND PERFORMANCE PLAN

Hello everyone! I have been in direct contact with the Ohio Public Health Department and have studied the statistical data which they are making available to the general public and to organizations such as ours. Our Board of Directors are all in agreement and in full support of compliance to all the required and suggested policies that the Local, State and Federal Governments have implemented and suggested. I’m sure that all of us agree that limiting contact at this juncture is a wise move understanding that our membership is in fact the number one target of everyone’s preventative action. Local, State and National instructions lists non-participation in large groups, right after continued exaggerated cleanliness, as EVERYONE’S smartest move! For this reason we will not be meeting for ensemble rehearsals until such a time that the “ALL CLEAR” notification is announced to the community. We will begin offering small group classes and sectional rehearsals held at Jim Stahl’s Cavalier Studio before returning to our school host sites. Our up-coming Concert performances will be rescheduled insuring that we have appropriate full ensemble rehearsal time in preparation. Posting these dates and times at this juncture would be complete guess work on my part. Please help by passing this information on to members that you may know that DO NOT USE THE INTERNET!! Carefully keep your instrument clean especially those of you who play wind instruments! Continue to stay in contact with Jaime and I and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!
