El Sistema USA

33 years ago in a parking garage in Caracas, Dr. Jos?? Antonio Abreu gathered together 11 children to play music. El Sistema was born. It now teaches music to 300,000 of Venezuela???s poorest children, demonstrating the power of ensemble music to dramatically change the life trajectory of hundreds of thousands of a nation???s youth while transforming the communities around them.
