If everybody visiting our site contributed one donor SMS a month, two more children’s orchestras would be playing in the Czech Republic changing the life of their members for the better.

Just like El Sistema, the Harmonie Foundation, too, believes that music can change children’s lives. This is why the foundation has brought the world-acclaimed project, which connects excellent musicians with children, to the Czech Republic. The Harmonie Foundation establishes children’s orchestras and engages children in a free instrumental group instruction under a professional leadership.

The project was launched by Maestro José Antonio Abreu in Venezuela forty years ago.

At present hundreds of El Sistema-inspired projects exist all over the world.

The Sistema Europe Network was established in February 2012. The Harmonie Foundation is one of its founding members.
