A Band is Born!

Inaugural performance of the Tucson New Horizons Band – Spring 2019 Concert

Started in October 2018, the Tucson New Horizons Band brought together a varied group of older Tucsonans with a wide spectrum of music making histories. Members’ music playing abilities ranged from currently playing an instrument, having once played but had been away from it for many years, to ones who had never played an instrument nor read music before. Six months later after having one two-hour rehearsal a week, the inaugural public performance of the Tucson New Horizons band was held on May 4th, 2019 in a shared concert with University of Arizona Outreach Honor Band in Crowder Hall on the UA campus.

Tucson New Horizons played two pieces on its own and a third was played together with the UA Outreach Honor Band that includes 6th – 9th graders. The bands only had a few hours of combined rehearsal together, but it was a great experience to have younger and older musicians play and learn together.
