Good news from our president, Carolyn-

Hi all!

It's Carolyn with some good news for you!

MMB will be opening up the band room for rehearsals - they are allowing vaccinated members to start attending June 22.

MMB does not have any requirements for the New Horizons Band (or any other renters) as far as what Covid-19 protocols we need to have in place. Your Board has approved the following guidelines.

  • We will resume Tuesday, June 29 at our 9AM time!

  • The NHB cannot and will not be responsible for anyone who has not had the vaccine.  As always, anyone who does not feel well should stay home and not share germs!

  • If people want to bring their horn covers, masks, and puppy pads that will be up to them. Clean up of EVERYONE'S immediate area is the responsibility of each member.

  • We will have 2 -15 minute breaks where people are required to move outside so the room can air out. No socializing in the band room. (Naturally bathroom usage is fine!)

Our rehearsal will consist of:  30 mins playing, 15 mins break, 30 mins playing, 15 mins break and 30 mins playing.  At the conclusion of band we again ask that socializing be done outdoors.

Well, this is exciting to finally be back playing (and socializing!) again.  I know many of the snow birds will not be attending, but we look forward to seeing y'all back in the fall!  Check out our website. I'm sure we'll have new photos to post once we get back into the swing!

Stay healthy and happy!


The New Horizons Band of Melbourne is simply a fun band to be a part of! We offer an education based program that targets people who may not have played in a while as well as complete beginners. So dust off that instrument you haven't touched since high school - or even pick a new one that you've always wanted to play - and come join us. While we are mostly older adults, the band is open to players of all ages and abilities. Home schooled musicians who can handle a two hour rehearsal are welcome, too! Improvement is our constant companion because "the better you get, the more fun it is!"
Want to learn more?  Stop by and visit us.
