This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Sistema Toronto Academy

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.
