Calling all music lovers! Dig out your old instrument and join a group of fun-loving musicians age 50 and older in the New Horizons Band. The group will begin band rehearsals starting Jan. 29 at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood Dr., Roeland Park.
The New Horizons Band is a program of the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in conjunction with the University of Missouri – Kansas City’s Conservatory of Music and Dance and Meyer Music. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t played in years!  The band offers an opportunity to make music in a relaxed, learning atmosphere, and includes brass, woodwind, and percussion.

Rehearsals for the New Horizons Band take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday beginning Jan. 29.
