Sistema Cyprus campaign
At the beginning of this academic year the English School’s Music Department donated 11 violins to Sistema Cyprus.
We are now delighted to see that the instruments have been put to good use, and that a new group with 11 young violinists was formed as a result of the donation. The Music Department’s vision ‘Every Child a Musician’ is fully embodied in Sistema’s ideals. The aim is to give the opportunity to children to dream through music but also to involve the society in this dream as a collective effort.
Sistema Cyprus is an El Sistema inspired social music, orchestra and choir programme that aims to provide free music education to migrant, refugee and Cypriot children and young people. The Sistema Cyprus currently engages 200 children and young people from Cyprus, Greece, Somalia, Congo, Ivory Coast, Syria, Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, Albania, Romania, Poland, Georgia, Russia and Indonesia.
Now, Sistema Cyprus is making an effort to expand by starting a Winds ensemble in Larnaca this October! If you have any unused wind instruments you can donate them to the children of Sistema Cyprus. Read more about how you can help in the link below:
