Ensemble Overview

West Michigan New Horizons Music Ensembles


In addition to four active groups, we also showcase several seasonal or special event groups. The German Band often performs at local Oktoberfest events while the Ransom Street Big Band and the Ransom Street Ramblers play various venues when requested. In addition, some players form small ensembles for performing during the fall or spring concerts and during private recitals and events such as our spring Solo & Ensemble program and potluck lunch.
