The Shire New Horizons is a place where adult musicians, beginners and comeback players can join together and share their love of music! We have over 50 members who all enjoy learning and helping each other each week. Of course, we take some time out for morning tea in there too!

Some of us have never played before, others are learning new instruments, and some are getting back into playing after stopping for quite some time. The bands are made up of concert band instruments including flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba, bass guitar and percussion.

If you don’t know what instrument you would like to play, please contact us and we can take you through the options. You’re more than welcome to come along one a Thursday morning and see how much fun we all have!
