Music collaboration across generations
Loveland, Ohio – Loveland High School orchestras hosted Cincinnati’s New Horizons Orchestra in concert on Thursday, February 21. New Horizons, a music program at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music (CCM), provides an entry point to music making for adults over 50, including those with no musical experience and others who may have played an instrument in their youth. The New Horizons Orchestra offers ensemble instruction under the direction of UC Assistant Professor BettyAnne Gottlieb.
“This was such an exciting opportunity for the musicians in both ensembles,” said Loveland Orchestra Director Rachel Bierkan. “The collaboration across generations offered insight, perspective and a wealth of life knowledge sharing for both groups!”
The New Horizons program at CCM is tied to the New Horizons International Music Association, which supports similar music groups across the United States, Canada and the world.
