The national New Horizons Band program was developed by professor Roy Ernst of the Eastman School of Music in 1991. The program offers adults the chance to learn how to play a concert band instrument and perform with other amateur musicians. The program has introduced thousands of people to the joys and benefits of music making.
The local North Coastal New Horizons Band is the Carlsbad affiliate of the National program.
The bands are hosted by the Museum of Making Music and conducted by Allison Hargis.
