El Sistema Santa Cruz

El Sistema Santa Cruz is a pilot after school orchestral program that debuted at Gault Elementary School in May, 2012. With an initial grant from the Yahoo Employee Foundation, sponsored by a Gault parent and Yahoo employee, El Sistema seeks to provide high quality music instruction and ensemble performance. The program began with kindergartners, expanding to Kindergarten and first grade in 2012-13.

El Sistema Santa Cruz is part of a growing number of US programs modeled after the legendary El Sistema Venezuela program. Through music instruction and performance, El Sistema is part of a global movement to transform the lives of young people. It is, at its essence, social change through music.
