New Horizons Orchestra

New Horizons Music programs provide entry points to music-making for people over age 50, including those with no musical experience at all and adults who were active in school music programs, but have been inactive for a long period.

Members of New Horizons Music programs participate in small group instruction and ensemble rehearsals, with the potential for chamber music and speciality music groups depending on the interests of the members. You’ll find music making is great for mental and social stimulation, physical fitness, releasing stress and stimulating your creativity.

CCM Preparatory's New Horizons Orchestra offers ensemble instruction under the direction of experienced teacher BettyAnne Gottlieb.
