The Iowa City New Horizons Band (ICNHB) was founded in January 1995. Our mission is to provide the opportunity for all persons age 50 and older to learn and make music. In addition to the band itself, the ICNHB will encourage entry-level group-music opportunities for members and nonmembers alike and facilitate the many current self-formed ensembles and those that will emerge. Our atmosphere is one of casual comraderie mixed with a passion for making beautiful music!
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
