New Horizons Orchestra lists organizational meeting Dec. 15

A new educational and musical group for senior adults, the Provo New Horizons Orchestra, will join the ranks of some 450 New Horizons groups nationwide in January.

To kick off the New Horizons Orchestra Program, an organizational meeting will be hosted at the Eldred Senior Center from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 15. Any adults over age 40 who are interested in participating in the orchestra will have the opportunity to try out the four orchestral string instruments--violin, viola, cello and bass--with sample instruments provided by Summerhays Music Center.

The orchestra will be launched with cooperation between the Brigham Young University School of Music and the Eldred Center, with support from BYU's Watkins Endowment for Music and Family and Summerhays Music Center.

For further information on the Provo New Horizons Orchestra, contact Andrew Dabczynski at 422-2317 or the Eldred Senior Center at 852-6620.
