Sistema Toronto uses the global language of music to help children realize their full potential as engaged and responsible citizens. Based on the UNESCO award-winning El Sistema international music program model, Sistema Toronto runs free, high-calibre intensive after-school music education programs that build self-esteem and empathy, and promote students’ growth into successful leaders. This year, Sistema will run an in-school program for children in low-income neighbourhoods to create and perform musical compositions accompanied by visuals that express newcomers’ experiences in Canada.
This is an outstanding city.
