Spreading the Venezuelan Music Program El Sistema Worldwide

Tony Woodcock is President of the New England Conservatory of Music (NEC) in Boston. The NEC just graduated its fifth class of Sistema Fellows. These Fellows are educated in Venezuela’s El Sistema music principles, which Tony will explain in his talk. The Fellows are creating and leading musical education centers for children throughout the United States and beyond. Lorrie Heagy, director of Juneau Alaska Music Matters (JAMM), was a member of the first class of Fellows, and has created a program here in Juneau that embodies the ideals of El Sistema. She and her program are nationally admired as leaders in the American movement.
