The Dixieland Jazz Band is a 12-piece group and an offshoot of New Horizons Band, a program of the 50 Plus Department in conjunction with the University of Missouri - Kansas City's Conservatory of Music and Dance and Meyer Music. Both groups consist of music-loving adults age 50 and beyond and include brass, woodwind, and percussion.
