The Pikes Peak New Horizons Gold Concert Band began in September 2002. It was created for anyone 40 years of age or older who would like to continue playing their band instrument or would like to relearn the instrument they played years ago in school. Instruments used in the Gold Concert Band include: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Oboe, Bassoon, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, and various Percussion instruments.
The Gold Concert Band presently meets for rehearsals on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:45 to 11:45 a.m. with a 20-minute refreshment break.
Although learning to play together as a band is important, socializing is a very integral part of each rehearsal. Through the years many close friendships have developed because of people coming together to play a band instrument. We invite you to come join the fun.
If you would like to become a member of this quality organization or if you have any questions, contact Director Bill Callen, (719) 598-2373, or Associate Director Mark Israel, (719) 661-6282.
