El Sistema Residency at the King School

PROJECT MUSIC is partnering with the King School, SpreadMusicNow, and other community music organizations to present an exciting event: “El Sistema: Building and Connecting Communities Through Music”

For the third year running, PROJECT MUSIC will collaborate with the King School, Bravo Waterbury, and the Baltimore Symphony OrchKids for a multi-day residency full of creativity, camaraderie, and great music. This year, the Charter Oak Cultural Center and Intake Organization will also bring student participants, and the Funky Dawgz Brass Band will be in residence to educate students about the New Orleans brass band tradition. In addition to some New Orleans classics, all participating students will collaborate on an entirely new composition of their own creation.

Following four days of workshops and rehearsals, participants will join together to present a culminating concert at 7:00 pm in the King School Performing Arts Center.
