Join us at Wellfield Botanic Gardens on Thursday evening, June 7 for Community Music Night, an evening of Free Admission and 30-minute mini-concerts provided by local music groups including the New Horizons Band, Elkhart Community Chorus, and the Golden Beats!
Free Admission begins at 5 p.m., with music beginning at 6:30 until closing at 8 p.m.
This is a great opportunity to visit Wellfield in the evening hours and experience a sampling of Elkhart County musical talent. Here is info about each group.
- New Horizons Band was formed in 2000 and is a part of the New Horizons International Music Association (NHIMA), an international non-profit organization committed to the philosophy of music making including providing entry points to music making for adults, including those with no musical experience at all and also those who were active in school music programs but have been inactive for a long period. Directors: Camille Smith and Everett Smith.
- Golden Beats® stimulates people whether they are young or old, healthy or ill. When we drum and dance we are having FUN! This in return releases endorphins and releases negative feelings. The rhythmical patterns of the drum increases synchronization of brain wave activity which in turn provides feelings of euphoria and improved mental awareness and self acceptance. Golden Beats® is specially designed for the senior population. Director: Babette Boling
The Elkhart Community Chorus is a choir made up of music lovers in the Elkhart Indiana area. What started out as a choir whose membership was made up of Elkhart High School Alumni (and was formerly called the Elkhart Alumni Choir) has grown to include anyone who enjoys participating in a group of serious choral singers. Director: Michael Wade
