Welcome to Sistema Australia!
Sistema Australia is a national initiative that offers orchestral training and performance programs for children as a vessel for positive social change.
Inspired by El Sistema - the Venezuelan network of orchestral programs that has reached over 4 million youth - Sistema Australia's programs offer children the rich education of classical music in an orchestral or ensemble setting as a means to develop themselves as expressive, cooperative and engaged members of the community, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances.
Sistema Australia programs offer children in disadvantaged communities the opportunity to partake in a rich and powerful after-school music program through participation in orchestras and choirs. Each program sees a unique collaboration between Sistema Australia and various local, national, and philanthropic organisations to provide children with exceptional musical training for 3 - 5 days per week, with an emphasis on performance and also rich cultural experiences.
