About this SegmentEl Sistema
El Sistema is a publicly financed, voluntary sector, music-education program, founded in Venezuela in 1975 by Venezuelan educator, musician, and activist José Antonio Abreu. Since then, the program has emerged as a global movement that promotes children and youth engagement in community and school-based music-making experiences. Roosevelt STEAM Academy in Elkhart Community Schools was the first school in the county to launch an El Sistema inspired program with a vision to integrate music into the daily school schedule and provide all students with the opportunity to play an instrument and the program continues to make a big impact in the Elkhart Community.
