NACHO – VANCOUVER’S NEWBIE ADULT CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
LEARN TO PLAY IN A CHAMBER ORCHESTRA FOR NEW/INEXPERIENCED MUSICIANS
Open house – March 19th, 10am-noon, room 112 at the Dunbar Community Centre
Our NACHO (NEWBIE ADULT CHAMBER ORCHESTRA) is both for beginners and for those with some musical experience.
Dunbar Community Centre Association is pleased to partner with NACHO (Newbie Adult Chamber Orchestra), a New Horizons chamber orchestra for beginning musicians (http://newhorizonsmusic.org/). This is the first of its kind in Vancouver, and we welcome you to come out and learn more about this new program which provides an entry point to music making for adults, including those with no musical experience at all and those who were active in school music programs but have been inactive for a long time. Many adults would like an opportunity to learn music in a group setting similar to that offered in schools, but the last entry point in most cases was elementary or high school. Estimates are that up to 80 percent of the adult population needs beginning instruction in order to participate in making music.
Led by an experienced Music Director, the program starts September 2018.
Attendees are responsible for providing their own instruments. It is recommended that beginners initially rent their instrument, if they do not already own it, when starting the program. Attendees may also wish to speak with the Music Director for guidance in choosing an instrument.
