One Orchestra. One Community. One New Home.
El Sistema Colorado celebrates its first after-school community hub, a thriving music center, ensuring equal access.
“…because music is a right, not a privilege.” ~ Maestro José Antonio Abreu
From El Sistema Colorado Board and Staff
We always knew we needed a central home.
One place to unite our orchestra.
One place to build stronger community.
One place for joyful music ~ a human right for all.
We have found that home in Denver’s Curtis Park neighborhood, thanks to a new partnership with the Denver Housing Authority. We are preparing it to launch programming in our new home to 75 students after school, Fall 2019.
El Sistema Colorado has served over 1,300 students since 2012. Now, this new, centralized community hub, located at 2980 Curtis Street, will welcome our current young musicians and families, as well as new ones. The center will be located one to three miles from our partnering Denver Public Schools: Garden Place Elementary Swansea Elementary and Bruce Randolph Middle and High School, which are located in the Globeville, Elyria-Swansea, Cole and Clayton neighborhoods. And there will be plenty of room to serve more kids, both from our current partner schools, and from within our new Curtis Park / Five Points neighborhood.
Thank you to everyone who has supported El Sistema Colorado from the beginning. We could not have done it without you.
