El Sistema


In 1975, Jose Abreu founded a music program that now provides instrumental instruction to a quarter million of the poorest children in Venezuela. These young musicians play in 125 orchestras. Fundación del Estado para el Sistema Nacional de las Orquestas Juveniles e Infantiles de Venezuela, (Fesnojiv) is known as El Sistema.

MYOCA and Scrollworks were inspired by and loosely modeled after El Sistema.

The video of the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra at the 2007 Proms that prompted the comment that 'It can happen here.' -- and thus began Scrollworks!
