About Us

El Sistema Colorado believes that ensemble music making can catalyze the tremendous potential in Colorado’s youth. We create long-term, positive relationships, using the musical ensemble as a training ground for future success. ESC captures the joy in making music to ignite students’ passion, potential, and leadership through our intensive, long-term music education program. Our organization provides completely free music programming and instruments to Denver’s under-resourced students as a means to build a more equitable future for all of Denver’s youth. ESC is a member of El Sistema USA, and a part of the global El Sistema movement.
