New Horizon Band

The Flathead Valley New Horizons Band was founded in 2010 for the purpose of providing an opportunity for senior adults to learn to play an instrument in a group. Our program welcomes adults who have never played music before as well as those who have not played for many years. Many of our group have started as beginners. We have fun learning together and find great satisfaction in our musical growth. Our beginning band focuses on learning to play and our experienced band plays for community events. We believe “You are Never too Old to Play Music!” If you have a desire to learn to play music , please join us!

The conductor is Eileen Alexander. You can contact her at: egsaxa@hotmail.com or call at 406-260-8539 for more information.

The group rehearses on Thurdays at Snappys Sport Center at 6:30 to 9:00pm. Call to check rehearsal schedule.

Bavarian Echoes

Bavarian Echos

The Bavarian Echos was established by Paul Lawrence who had a long time love affair with Octoberfest and wanted to bring the spirit of that even to the Flathead Valley. Using select members of the community band, this group specializes in playing german waltzes, polkas and other great festive pieces suitable for the Octoberfest celebrations. Performing in full authentic clothing, the group includes dances and singers to round out the experiance.

The Bavarian Echos are primarily active during the fall playing at several local Octoberfest activities. They have also been hired to perform at special events including state conventions and private parties.
