The Magic Valley Orchestra string bassist and local businessman made a generous donation that will allow the band and the Burley High School Orchestra to purchase new, more comfortable chairs.
Hollis Pincock, owner of CH Coins in Burley, said old chairs can really be a pain in the back, among other parts of the body. Pincock, plays string bass in the Magic Philharmonic Orchestra when his health permits, but says from experience that current chairs aren’t comfortable for more than a few minutes at a time. The program has been using sturdy cafeteria style chairs for years and although they are sturdy, they are not comfortable.
Pincock heard Dusty Fisher and Tim Wood, the instructors of Burley’s Band, Orchestra and Choir, talk about the need for better chairs and decided he would find a way to raise the $3,000 for 60 new chairs. From his personal experience as a musician, Pincock knows that good posture is essential to playing an instrument and felt that it was important enough for that to happen.
According to Pincock, Wood told him that the only sample chair already in the music room is the most popular place to sit in the room, and students rush to be the first to claim the chair in class.
