What is Sistema Sounds!?

El Sistema teachers Ron Alvarez (violin) and Félix Briceño (conductor), teachers from In Harmony Lambeth and young musicians from The Nucleo Project, welcome you to beautiful Wheatsheaf Hall, home to In Harmony Lambeth, for an intensive rehearsal of Venezuelan repertoire for strings, followed by an informal performance open to the local community. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and discuss ideas, and a mix of repertoire that may work well with your students and some pieces for your own learning and enjoyment.

Sistema Sounds! comes at the end of Ron & Felix’s five-week residency working with the young musicians and teachers at In Harmony Lambeth, In Harmony LiverpoolSistema in Norwich and The Nucleo Project.
