El Sistema USA Partner Resources for Members:
El Sistema USA offers several resources for Members through industry partnerships with organizations around the country. Below is a list of those resources with links to access those benefits.
El Sistema USA and Conn Selmer, Inc. have established the terms of a new partnership set to launch in the Fall of 2019.
At the core of the partnership is a Special Partnership Program for all El Sistema USA Members. The partnership will allow members to purchase Conn-Selmer string and band instruments at a special El Sistema USA Partnership price through their local school music dealer.
Members will also be granted free access to Conn Selmer’s cloud-based Instrument Inventory Management system, software, a solution used by thousands of schools and districts around the country. This investment by Conn Selmer, Inc. and their Division of Education is coupled with great excitement for the El Sistema movement in the U.S.
El Sistema USA is thrilled to partner with The Canales Project to provide El Sistema USA Member Organizations arrangements of “Hear Our Song”, the theme song of The Canales Project’s Hear Her Song initiative, composed by Katy Pfaffl arranged specifically for El Sistema-inspired programs by Joshua Cerdenia.
Hear Her Song is a musical celebration of women leaders with new songs inspired by their words. Since its inception in 2017, the initiative has commissioned forty songs from leading songwriters and composers worldwide, with honorees including Hillary Clinton, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Malala Yousafzai and composers including Emily Estefan, Shaina Taub and Georgia Stitt.
The Canales Project and El Sistema USA have worked to deliver arrangements that fit for a variety of ensembles.
Each of the arrangements below are available in “Beginner / Intermediate” as well as “Intermediate / Advanced”:
- Arrangement for chorus (Soprano 1, Soprano II, Alto)
- Arrangement for strings (Violin 1, Violin 2, Cello, Double Bass)
- Arrangement for wind and brass
- Full arrangement for chorus, strings, wind and brass
