Yakima Music en Acción

The Ensemble seeks to connect and inform all people who are committed to ensemble music education for youth empowerment and social change.

National Take a Stand Festival & Symposium


I remember that the first Take a Stand Symposium in 2012 was shaped by questions such as “How should we go about starting an El Sistema program?” and “What outcomes should we evaluate, and how?” This year’s symposium, which included YOLA students as participants, was framed by very different questions, signaling our relative maturity as a field.
