ABOUT US


The New Horizons Band of DePaul Community Music Division was established in 2004 when six dedicated individuals expressed an interest in playing music again after many years way from their instruments. Since its inception, the CMD chapter of the New Horizons International Music Association has steadily grown beyond New Horizons Concert Band to include an Orchestra, Flute Ensemble, and Jazz Ensemble. Dedicated to the New Horizons mission, the CMD welcomes adults who want to experience the excitement of performing a broad repertoire of music from Bach to Bernstein and everything in-between!

Established in 1988, the Community Music Division is a part of DePaul University's School of Music. The CMD serves more than 700 students in the Chicago area with an outstanding professional faculty of over 70 artist-educators. In addition to the New Horizons Ensembles, the school's comprehensive offerings include individual lessons, musicianship and instrumental classes, performance ensembles, workshops and student recitals. Several collaborative programs are offered in partnership with Chicago area schools and The Chicago Children's Choir.

We encourage you to sit in on a rehearsal and play at your own comfort level. Our goal is to constantly improve while enjoying the music we make.
