Hello Musicians,

Spring Extension Bands
Once again we will be offering an eight-week spring session starting in April after the winter session ends and ending in early June.  Following the practice we successfully implemented last year, all registrations for the spring session will take place through the website.  The fee for this session is $100 for one band, and $70 for each subsequent band.  Due to the shorter rehearsal period, withdrawal must take place before the second rehearsal to receive a full refund minus a $25 administrative charge.  Registration will run from March 22 to April 3 or until bands reach capacity, so early registration is recommended.

Here's what will be offered in spring 2020:

Calling all New Horizons Clarinet Players!
 
 
   
 
In collaboration with NHIMA, the International Clarinet Association is creating a new conference clarinet choir specifically for older adult clarinetists.  The New Horizons Conference Clarinet Choir will meet for an hour each day during the upcoming ICA ClarinetFest 2020 in Reno Nevada from June 24-28.  Participants will play a mix of styles and genres under the direction of Dr. Alan Woy, conductor of the Eastman-Rochester New Horizons Clarinet Choir in Rochester, New York, and will perform on the last day of the conference.  ICA is offering NHIMA members a reduced ICA membership fee and a reduced registration fee for the conference. For more information go to clarinet.org and also check out the upcoming NHIMA newsletter.
