An El Sistema-Inspired Initiative
The five fundamental principles of el Sistema:1. Social Change: The primary objective is social transformation through the pursuit of musical excellence. One happens through the other, and neither is prioritized a t the expense of the other. 2. Ensembles: the focus of el Sistema is the orchestra or choral experience.3. Frequency: el Sistema ensembles meet multiple times every week over extended periods.4. Accessibility: el Sistema programs are free, and are not selective in admission.5. Connectivity: Every núcleo is linked at the urban, regional, and national levels, forming a cohesive network of services and opportunities for students across the country.
It is not just about music. El Sistema is a social rescue program of profound social transformation. Music is vitality, energy, enthusiasm, and strength
