This website, design and content © 2014-2015 Peninsula New Horizons Band
The New Horizons Band program was developed for adults with no (or long ago) music experience who wish to learn to play a band instrument, or re-learn an instrument they used to play.
There is a fall and a spring semester. We meet each season on Thursdays in the education (east) wing of Bay View Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay--6:00-8:00 pm for the beginner group, and 7:30-9:00 pm for the mid/advanced groups.
The Peninsula New Horizons Band was started the late fall of 2012. We are open to anyone 18 and up with a desire to lean to play. Experience does not matter! You do not need to know how to read music - we will teach you! You will have a sense of accomplishment and a lot of fun along the way.
In Director Paula Eggert’s work as a music teacher and director of the Peninsula Symphonic Community Band, she has met many adults who regret not having the opportunity to learn to play an instrument in their youth. "Music has been such a wonderful part of my life, and I share this through my work as an educator and through performance ensembles. I couldn't imagine not having music in my life, and I know it is never too late to start enjoying the fun, the creativity, as well as the physical and the social benefits of belonging to a musical group. The thrill of performing music in a group is so satisfying! I have met such fascinating people through my music, and I am sure I will meet many more through this endeavour!"
