Description

The Late Starters Orchestra (BOOK)

In a cluttered room in an abandoned coat factory in lower Manhattan, a group of musicians comes together each week to make music. Some are old, some are young—and all have come late to music or come back to it after a long absence.

This is the Late Starters Orchestra—the bona fide amateur string orchestra in which author Ari Goldman pursues a lifelong dream of playing the cello, which he hadn’t picked up in 25 years. Goldman attempts to understand what motivates his fellow late starters, amateurs all, whose quest is for joy, not artistic ambition.

“Enchanting illustrations by Eric Hanson of Goldman’s fellow late-starter musicians add interest and make this more than just a memoir about music and all that it offers; it is also a warm and moving testament to the opportunities of aging.”
—Booklist
