The children of El Sistema Greece learn music on a daily basis, but who else than the most prominent musicians in the world can show them how to be artists? We are grateful to have exceptional artists on our side!
Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, one of the world’s most famous opera singers, is the ambassador of El Sistema Greece and supports the project in any possible way. Joyce DiDonato joined El Sistema Greece for a series of performances and workshops in Athens.
Il Pomo d'Oro orchestra
“We believe that Il Pomo d’Oro, a typical group of ‘musical migrants’ with many different nationalities, is a perfect ambassador of the el sistema idea, and we see it as our heartfelt responsibility to help with what we know best: music. We contribute to El Sistema Greece as a group by giving concerts and workshops and as individuals by providing instrumental lessons and tutoring.”
In June 2018, Il Pomo d’Oro orchestra returned to the Skaramagkas refugee camp to give courses and masterclasses as part of El Sistema Greece. They have been ambassadors of the project since its beginning. Watch a video from their latest residence.
