Community Music Project for Social Inclusion

El Sistema Greece is a community music project that since 2016 provides free music education to children and young people in Greece. All children —no matter their origin, nationality, or religion— are not only inspired to strive for a better future, but thanks to music, they are given a platform for dialogue and togetherness across diverse communities.  

Music is a universal language which can be a powerful tool for social inclusion. Musical education has been proven to be an incredibly effective medium for achieving long term social change for both the children involved, and their families, worldwide.

What People Say

Anna, 8 years old

I like music, I am happy when I play the violin and I love being on stage.

Mother of a violin student in Skaramagkas

When we arrived at the camp, he was shy and had no friends. In the music class he met friends, he improved his English, he talks more and is more confident. He is different now.

Gamkin, El Sistema Greece student

When I am singing, I don’t think about anything else. The whole world disappears as I sing in front of the people. I absolutely love it.

Member of El Sistema Greece Youth Orchestra

I've seen a huge improvement in myself and the orchestra as a whole. Being part of ESGYO offers me the challenge of constantly wanting to improve.
