New Horizons Music is an organization that was started in 1991 by Roy Ernest at the Eastman School of Music in New York. It has grown to over 180 chapters in the United States. In Bend, Ore., a New Horizons Music group that began in 2003 with 13 members has grown to over 70 players and practices twice weekly.
