3.  New Beginner Jazz Band
We have much good news to share!  On the 10th anniversary of Ottawa New Horizons Band, there will be a new jazz band (called Jumpin’ Jazz Band) starting on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at Brookfield High School.  It is intended for musicians with a year or more on their instruments who have mastered Book 1 of Essential Elements and are ready to “jump in” to jazz.  For a description and further information, click here.

Musically Yours,
The ONHB Team
