Background[edit | edit source]
- El Sistema, also El Sistema Pittsburgh is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization modeled after the namesake music program which originated in Venezuela (also known as VEN) in the 1970s. El Sistema is a tested model proven to transform children’s lives through music. At the root of the philosophy of El Sistema is the idea that music education – specifically ensemble music education – can and should be used as a means of uplifting and unifying an underserved community, starting with the youth.
