To The Daily Sun,
I'm wearing my "Clarinet Karen" hat today, and on behalf of the New Horizons Band of the Lakes Region and conductor Mary Divers, I'm writing to thank Vint Choiniere, Russell Weeks, and the Meredith Parks and Rec Department for inviting the band to once again play the pre-fireworks concert in Hesky Park this year. The kids were dancing, the people clapping, and the musicians had a lot of fun playing wonderful pieces for a great crowd.
The band will continue summer concerts in Gilford on July 21, Sanbornton on July 25, Bristol on Aug.t 20, Center Harbor on Aug. 22, and a possible Laconia date on Sept. 1. Performing year-round, the holiday concerts will begin in November and December at the Veterans Home, the Belknap County Home, the Taylor Community and other locations around the Lakes Region. In the spring there are exchange concerts with several other New Horizons bands across the state.
Our concerts are always free to the public and the band welcomes musicians of all skill levels. New Horizons bands have been created around the world for those musicians who are over 50, with the slogan "Making Music for Life." However, the New Horizons Band of the Lakes Region welcomes musicians of many ages. Practices are on Tuesday nights from 7-9 p.m. and/or Saturday afternoons from 1-2:30 p.m. at the Music Clinic in Belmont. More information can be found at newhorizons-lakesregion.org.
Hope to see you at a concert soon, and thanks again Meredith Parks & Rec.
