El Sistema in New England
I wanted to follow up on my post The promise of El Sistema and the promise of our system. It looks like José Antonio Abreu got his wish. In the Boston Globe today it's reported that El Sistema has come to the USA. At the New England Conservatory, the recently established El Sistema USA is trying to jumpstart a national movement dedicated to music education not as extracurricular enrichment but as a vehicle for transforming the lives of children in underserved urban communities. Bravo!!!
