Our Impact

Music touches the soul, enables us to learn through our senses, and lifts our spirits.  Sultry melodies and driving beats inspire our bodies to motion. The benefits of a comprehensive music education should be made available for all and not just a privileged few. In the spirit of El Sistema, we Sing, we Play, and we Strive!
