Teamwork is our mentality. Music is our super power. A music family is our dream

In the mid-1970s, maestro José Antonio Abreu invited a group of young Venezuelan children to make a dream come true: form a youth orchestra that would allow music students to carry out joint practices, transform education musical and create a great movement that became a decent and professional source of work. And then, El Sistema was set up in Venezuela as a social program to bring disadvantaged youth off the streets and into musical ensembles to enrich their lives and promote social mobility.

‘’Music has to be recognized as an agent of social development, in the highest sense because it transmits the highest values – solidarity, harmony, mutual compassion. And it has the ability to unite an entire community, and to express sublime feelings’’

 Maestro José Antonio Abreu

Inspired by the philosophy and innovative methodology of El Sistema, El Sistema Greece was founded in 2016 in order to offer free music classes in the Refugee Camps in Attica. Today, three years later, the program has adapted to Greece’s changing environment and our work is about bringing people together, no matter their background, language and religion. 

We take international composers, teachers and artists to work with our students and to support our teachers. The most updated techniques and practices can help us pursue our mission and to shape an innovative pedagogy.

Since the beginning of our activities, we have been working directly with pedagogues and musicians from Greece, Venezuela and all over the world. We welcome international composers, teachers and artists to work with our students and to support our teachers. The most updated techniques and practices can help us pursue our mission and to shape an innovative pedagogy.

What parents say…

“I was very worried at the beginning when we arrived in the camp because he was shy and had no friends. But with the music class he met friends, he improved his language, he talks more and is more confident. He is different now, thank you.”

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.

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.
