Dudamel Orchestra Helps Bring El Sistema to Somerville

On Wednesday the Dudamel orchestra shared a music rehearsal with beginning string players from a music program in Somerville. The young musicians from the East Somerville Elementary School and the Edgerly Elementary School in Somerville will join Conservatory Lab students for a collaborative concert on November 16th.


The purpose of the concert is to build support for a new nucleo that will function as an everyday afterschool El Sistema inspired music program at the two Somerville Elementary Schools involved. Like the El Sistema program at Conservatory Lab, the proposed Somerville program will provide free, accessible, high-quality music instruction to a diverse population.
