Welcome to West Michigan New Horizons Music Ensembles. Our organization is a member of the New Horizons International Music Association. Founded in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1999 with just 13 members, our group has grown rapidly and today numbers nearly 100 musicians participating in five different ensembles. We are a non-profit organization that performs formal concerts as well as outreach programs for schools, retirement homes and nursing facilities. We believe music is a way of making vital connections to life.
