TRURO, N.S. – It’s never too late to make mu­sic.

Peo­ple 50 or older who’d like to learn to play a mu­si­cal in­stru­ment, or who played when they were younger and would like to take up and in­stru­ment again, are in­vited to take part in the 20th Wave Cobe­quid New Horizons Band pro­gram.

The new wave be­gins at 4 p.m. on Thurs­day, Sept. 12 with an in­stru­ment demon­stra­tion and ex­per­i­men­ta­tion ses­sion up­stairs at Colch­ester Le­gion Sta­dium on Lorne Street.

The pro­gram is ad­min­is­tered and taught by Paul Bar­rett, a re­tired mu­sic teacher and pro­fes­sional mu­si­cian.

The Cobe­quid New Horizons Band pro­gram starts groups of begin­ners twice a year – in Septem­ber and Jan­uary – and has been op­er­at­ing for 10 years.
