El Sistema USA is supporting and growing a nationwide movement of programs inspired by El Sistema to effect social change through music for children with the fewest resources and the greatest need.
We invite you to look back at our Annual Reports to see how we’ve grown!
2018 – 2019 Report
“From the creation of full-tuition university scholarships, to hosting our second annual symposium, and providing researching and benchmarking data for our growing community, we have explored how to make differences both large and small.” – Katie Wyatt, President & CEO, El Sistema USA
2017 – 2018 Report
We grew together.
We made music together.
We learned together.
Highlights from 2017 – 2018 included our first annual El Sistema USA National Symposium, the development of our webinar series, the launch of PRESTO (Program for Rising El Sistema-inspired Organizations), and an 83% growth in our membership!
Programs around the country gathered at Regional Seminarios across the country, and members performed an arrangement of Leonard Bernstein’s “Somewhere” arranged specifically for El Sistema-inspired ensembles.
