‘Sistema means to me an orchestra and a family bound by the joys of music and the atmosphere and creativity it allows us free rein. One of my most favourite quotes is that “music is the universal language of mankind” and this applies an enormous amount to Sistema, a place where everyone is accepted and given a chance to experience music at it’s best, to be creative and most importantly – be yourself.’  Victoria, Sistema England Young Leader, Sistema in Norwich.
