Sistema Portugal: Orquestra Geraçaõ Celebrates 10 Years!


In early July, Sistema Portugal: Orquestra Geraçaõ celebrated its 10th anniversary in Lisbon.

Sistema Europe also participated in the Lisbon celebration, together with a number of national programmes and international organisations like the Hilti Foundation, which has provided crucial support for the network ever since it was founded in 2012.
