About Me

The New Horizons Band of Northern New York and my clarinet playing began together. From the fall of 2009 to the fall of 2014 I improved my clarient playing while the band grew from fumbling through Hot Cross Buns to giving concerts around the North Country. It was a wonderful experience that opened opportunities for music making and socializing that I would not have had any other way. Then, in September 2014, we moved to Massachusetts. It has been a good move EXCEPT that I terribly miss being part of NHBNNY. It was an experience and relationship that I will never be able to replicate. Thank you, NHBNNY.

About Me

I played the clarinet throughout my high school years. When I retired from SUNY Potsdam, I decided to pick it up again. I have really enjoyed making music with everyone in New Horizons since I joined.

About Me

I started playing coronet in 4th grade, switched to baritone horn in high school, and continued to play in college. I am glad to be playing again after so many years – thank you New Horizons Band! I am an avid reader. I enjoy occasional rides on my motorcycle, and working at my new hobby of bookbinding. My husband Rick and I live in Massena.

About Me

I played clarinet seriously from ages 10 to 20, and then didn't play again until September 2014. My husband, Joel, had to push me into trying New Horizons, but I'm glad I did! We moved away from the North Country last year. I'm now a member of the Eastman Rochester New Horizons Symphonic Band and Clarinet Choir, both of which are directed by Alan Woy, who is a retired professor from Crane.

About Me

 I started out in 4th grade playing flute...the only choice I had since I was told no Reed Insturments, and I had braces so brass was out, continued playing for the past 50+ years by myself. Joined NHB to get back to playing with others. Decided on taking trombone as well as flute to give myself a challenge. I really enjoy playing both, and plan to continue playing both.

I was a school bus driver, left that position when we moved here in 1999, returned to college (SUNY Canton) graduated with a Business Degree, now I sit home and play with Teddy Bears (my business is 'EmBears) I also teach classes for the American Red Cross. My husband & I travel during the summer on our motorcycles...the only way to travel.
