New Horizons Band of Colorado Springs


What is your stress reliever? Ours is music! The music helps us and all those who hear us perform. We put the world aside for a few hours, come together as a group and play our instruments. The music flows through us and melts the stress away as we “Keep the Music Alive.”


We welcome musicians, beginners to professional. We are 170 musicians strong participating in six diverse ensembles. We provide support to the community by performing free concerts throughout the Pikes Peak region. We partner with Graner Music to refurbish instruments for young area musicians. And we hire six part-time employees and directors. Ask our members and they’ll tell you we are great!


Funds to start new music programs, musicians, an outdoor summer concert location, and young, strong volunteers for concert setup and tear-down.

“I joined New Horizons Band after a 44-year hiatus since high school. Playing the great variety of music with others who have become good friends is truly an uplifting experience. New Horizons has a very positive impact on my life.”
— Harley Ferguson, euphonium player
