Where:  South Broadway Christian Church

Cost:  Freewill donations accepted at the door. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to El Sistema Colorado, and they are tax-deductible.  Please make out your checks directly to El Sistema Colorado.

Details:  The Rhythmic-Solfège V students are graduating from the Rhythmic-Solfège Program, and they will present solo performances on their instruments playing works by Alexander, Bober, Heller, Janáček, Le Coz, Mendlessohn, and Veracini.  Additionally, Rhythmic-Solfège II, III, IV, and V will all present their final Plastique-Anmée performances showcasing music by Grieg, Holst, Kabalevsky, and Mussorgsky.   Plastique-Animée is a visual representation/analysis of a piece of music, where the students aim to demonstrate the various elements of the music they find meaningful or important.  In many ways, these performances demonstrate how the Dalcroze work inspires creativity, expression, and joy!

For Whom:  This is a very family-friendly event.  Families and children are welcome and encouraged to come and enjoy the performances.  We hope to see you there!!!

What is El Sistema?  El Sistema Colorado is a visionary movement that transforms the lives of children through music; a new model for social change.

Our mission is to empower children by providing an intensive music program that teaches the importance of teamwork, promotes self-confidence, and instills the value of social responsibility.

El Sistema grows from loving children first and loving music second. Emphasis is placed on creating a supportive community. Teachers and students alike are invested in both personal and community success, creating a place where children feel safe and challenged.

Our graduates leave with a sense of capability, endurance and resilience — owning a confidence about taking on enormous challenges in their lives. A deep sense of value, of being loved and appreciated, and a trust for group process and cooperation enables them to feel that excellence is in their own hands.
