Sistema Updates from the United States

Sistema Updates from the United States


Here are a few new Sistema ideas in the United States, and an invitation to the join the El Sistema USA National Symposium at the end of January:

  • A course at El Sistema Oklahoma, in partnership with Oklahoma City University, called FAME (Future Awesome Music Educators) encourages young people of color to get music teaching experience while young, including during their years in the Sistema program.  They get high level FAME instruction in teaching, and opportunities to practice teaching their peers, while they are a part of El Sistema Oklahoma.  To read more about it, check out the latest issue of The Ensemble
  • You may also want to read Editor Tricia Tunstall’s review of the Sistema year 2018 in North America in the current issue of The Ensemble.
  • MYCincinnati, in Ohio, is expanding its annual Price Hill Creative Community Festival, which has its young musicians partnering with artists in residence to create new work.  They are now adding a Creative Action Residency for a U.S. or international artist who wishes to engage with students around the core question: How is musical practice uniquely qualified to develop human beings skilled in the art of citizenship? The Creative Action Resident Artist will work collaboratively with MYCincinnati’s advanced students to co-create a performance project that directly engages with this core question, and puts the ideals of citizenship into embodied creative practice. The inaugural 2019 Creative Action Resident Artist will be Shara Nova of My Brightest Diamond, and the final work will be premiered at the 2019 Price Hill Creative Community Festival (July 19-20).  The program is supported by Carnegie Hall’s PlayUSA.
  • El Sistema USA has posted the list of sessions for the El Sistema USA National Symposium. International guests are welcome, and there is still time to register to join the annual gathering. The Symposium will be in Detroit on 30-31 January, coordinating with SphinxConnectwhich will take place 31 January – 2 February.
