The Símon Bolívar Orchestra's choice of concert dress provokes controversy in London
When Marshall Marcus posed the question to the panel: “What is in the DNA of el Sistema?” the responses were visceral, instant – and very different.
In what will be the biggest event in Stirling in 715 years, the Símon Bolívar Orchestra will play an outdoor concert Thursday, June 21st...
The United Kingdom (encompassing the separate regions and governments of Scotland, England, Wales and N. Ireland) has a long history with Sistema in terms of both núcleo development and presenting Venezuelan ensembles...and the situation in England proper is about to change dramatically!
Canadian núcleos are some of the oldest in North America; Canadian universities have hosted the first academic conferences related to el Sistema; a national foundation presented the Símon Bolívar Orchestra in its largest venue to date and formally honoured Maestro Abreu's achievements in 2008; and a Canadian youth orchestra has set the current gold standard internationally in advocating for and securing major government funding.
