New Horizons Music programs provide entry points to music-making for adults, including those with no musical experience at all and those who were active in school music programs but have been inactive for a long period.

A New Horizons Music program should be inclusive rather than exclusive. There are no auditions (for most groups). Every person has musical potential that can be developed to a level that will be personally rewarding.

The Clarrington New Horizons Music Group focuses on Big Band music from the 40s and 50s.

They perform in the Durham Region at Seniors Residences and dances.

Director, Fred Mildon

New Horizons Clarington is run by Fred Mildon, a lifetime musician who played and toured with the big bands of yesteryear.

Fred has grown the group into two big bands who play all of the standard big band repertoire plus a quartet. These three bands are able to provide music for any occasion. Their success is evidenced by the numerous return engagements they play at, performing the much loved music of the '30s, '40s, '50s and '60s and by the dancing and singing enthusiastically enjoyed by the audience.
