Provo's New Horizons Orchestra seeks new members

The Provo New Horizons Orchestra sponsored by Brigham Young University and the Eldred Senior Center begins its second season and invites new members to join.

New Horizon Orchestras are found throughout the nation. The orchestras give people over 40 a chance to learn an instrument. Many people who are older feel they cannot learn to play an instrument because of their age, but they can, which is why the Provo New Horizons Orchestra was formed last year.

"This is a program that is meant for people who always wanted to play a string instrument, but for some reason never did," said Andrew Dabczynski, director and primary instructor of the orchestra. "It also is for folks who might have spent years playing an instrument throughout their school and even college years, have put it away to have a career or raise a family, and now have the time and desire to pick it up again."

String instruments that orchestra members learn to play include the violin, viola, cello and bass.

Previous experience and training is not required to join the orchestra. Lessons and rehearsals are 9:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Sharon East LDS Stake Center, 2400 North 1090 East, Provo.

For more information, contact Andrew Dabczynski at (801) 422-2317.

The number of times a teacher compliments or recognizes a student’s good behavior, compared to how often the teacher reprimands the student, the more likely that student is going to stay focused on the task at hand.
