New Horizons Orchestra Fox Valley (NHOFV) joins New Horizons Band Fox Valley (NHBFV) as entities forming New Horizons Music Fox Valley, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The NHMFV board of directors administers policies and procedures of the combined organization. Day-to-day administration of New Horizons Orchestra Fox Valley is under an independent elected steering committee, working closely with director Rachel Richards, and Adam Korber, our beginner strings teacher to provide the best possible musical experience for orchestra members.

Orchestra steering committee members are volunteers; they receive no compensation. The committee asks for and uses orchestra members’ ideas and concerns when the committee meets to make decisions for and about the orchestra.

It has opened up a new avenue of friends, provided a wonderful outlet to play music with others, made me less fearful in performing before a crowd, made me realize how soothing playing music can be when things get rough”.  ~orchestra member
