BELMONT — The New Horizons Band is spreading the holiday cheer through their music with concerts scheduled throughout the month of December.

Today at 7 p.m. the band, under the direction of Mary Divers, will be playing a concert at the Veterans Home in Tilton. This is a semi-annual event enjoyed by both the residents and staff.

On Tuesday, December 17, the band will be performing its Christmas program at the Taylor Community at Woodside at 7 p.m. 

On Friday, December 20, an evening of band music will be enjoyed by the audience at the Good Shepherd Lutheran
Church on Parade Road in Laconia. And on December 21, at 2 p.m., the band will close out its holiday concert series
with a benefit concert for the Meredith Community Center. A freewill donation will be received at the door to benefit the Center.

As an added treat, the Laketones Jazz Band (New Horizons jazz ensemble) will perform the first half of the concert
tonight and at the December 21 performance.

Both the concert band and the Laketones Jazz Band rehearse twice weekly at the Music Clinic in Belmont and all levels
