New Horizons Bloomington is an adult beginner orchestra that gives people of all ages an opportunity to learn to play the violin, viola, cello, or bass in a group setting. We welcome complete beginners as well as those with some experience. Members will learn the basics of playing their instrument, how to read music, and how to play with others in an ensemble. We gather together to learn from one another, and have fun in the process!
