El Sistema is a transformational music education program, begun in 1975 in Venezuela, that has helped hundreds of thousands of children in poverty envision a brighter future for themselves. Now programs are growing across the US with the same goal- to foster musical excellence and citizenship. At a New York City seminario, beginners play with musicians from the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela. In Union City, NJ, parents help their children build paper violins to use before playing real instruments. And preschoolers begin to build skills in an ensemble, learning the importance of community.
