The New Horizons Bands at the MSU Community Music School-Detroit are open to anyone who has ever played an instrument, as well as those who want to learn to play for the very first time.
CMS-Detroit’s combined New Horizons Bands gave their annual spring performance titled “Our Community in Concert” at the Detroit School of Arts (DSA) Ford Theater on Wednesday, May 9. This annual spring event was FREE and open to the public. Potential new members were especially invited!
Led by award-winning Director Ed Quick, the concert featured the beginning and advanced New Horizons Bands whose supportive and multi-generational culture embraces teenagers through seniors. Joining them were the DSA Choir and the Grosse Pointe Band.
The program included two unique “hymns.” The first was a premiere of “Hymn” by Cass Tech graduate Chad Hughes, a new work commissioned for the CMS-Detroit’s New Horizons program. The other was Wilhousky’s famous version of Battle Hymn of the Republic for band and choir.
