What is El Sistema Colorado?
El Sistema Colorado is inspired by a global movement started in Venezuela almost 45 years ago. Our mission is to transform lives through music education. Our model is: intensive, afterschool, ensemble music education. Children learn in an ensemble so they experience the value of teamwork, leadership, collective impact. Performance opportunities occur throughout the year with partners like Metro State University, the Colorado Symphony, the Denver Philharmonic and the Baroque Chamber Orchestra.
