Thank you for visiting the companion website for the book El Sistema: Music for Social Change. This collection of essays shares practical details of El Sistema’s adaptation with those seeking knowledge, inspiration and guidance. It is my hope that these essays incite actions that advance the social mission of art in communities, classrooms, and concert halls.

To thank the HOLA community for the many invaluable lessons and formative experiences, all author proceeds from this book will be donated to Heart of Los Angeles, home of YOLA at HOLA.

I look forward to hearing your feedback and supporting the expansion of El Sistema in intentional, impactful ways.
