About New Horizons: The first New Horizons program was a band started by professor Roy Ernst at the Eastman School of Music in 1991 and supported by grants from the International Music Products Association and the National Association of Band Instrument Manufacturers. Word spread through articles in publications such as The New York Times and a feature spot on the Today Show. Since then, the program has grown to include bands, orchestras and other ensembles. Today there are more than 100 New Horizons Music programs in the United States and Canada with many more in the planning phase.
