Three-day El Sistema Training Program in Baltimore this July

June 13, 2011

BSO OrchKids host three-day training program for leaders of El Sistema-based programs throughout the U.S., July 13-15, 2011

The BSO’s El Sistema-inspired youth initiative, OrchKids, has grown significantly since it first started in Fall 2008. In keeping with El Sistema’s vision, OrchKids uses music as a vehicle for social change, transforming the lives of young people most in need. Under the leadership of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) and BSO Music Director Marin Alsop, OrchKids has become a model for orchestras in community and education programs throughout the country. In order to insure that staff, faculty and teaching artists are knowledgeable of, committed to and actively incorporating the principles of El Sistema, which include “consistency,” “intensity,” “community,” “audiation before visualization,” and ”passion over precision,” the BSO will present “Community Engagement through Music Education (CEME),” a three-day workshop from Wednesday to Friday, July 13-15, 2011 at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Lockerman Bundy and Mary Anne Winterling Elementary Schools in Baltimore, Maryland.

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any tips?
