Children and music

El Sistema Umeå

The praised El Sistema music education, where the music is used as a tool for children’s social and human development, will be established in Umeå in collaboration with Umeå Music School and Norrlandsoperan. El Sistema began as a social project in Venezuela and the method is now spread globally. Umeå will be the northernmost El Sistema-city in the world.

In Umeå, El Sistema will be introduced in pre- and primary schools in Ålidhem and Ersboda as a choir and orchestra school. The choir and the orchestra can be seen as a miniature society where everyone is needed with his or her voice and where you need to practice, work together and respect each other to achieve a common goal. The project includes the concert “Music from Moments when Life was at its Best.”
