About SISTEMA KINGSTON
- Social Change – Social transformation through the pursuit of musical excellence. One happens through the other and neither is prioritized at the expense of the other.
- Ensembles – The focus is on the group experience (orchestral/choral/percussion) and working toward a common goal. Peer mentoring is integral to the experience.
- Frequency – El Sistema ensembles meet multiple times every week for multiple hours at a time over extended periods.
- Accessibility – El Sistema programs are free and inclusive to all.
- Connectivity – El Sistema programs foster connectivity between students, teachers and families to build stronger communities. El Sistema programs are linked at the community, regional and national levels, forming a cohesive network of services, resource sharing collaborative opportunities and advocacy in support of each other.
