The Mayor of the City of Houston, Sylvester Turner, declared this date as a day to celebrate this nonprofit organization.
On Monday, July 17th, El Sistema Texas marked its first anniversary, and as a gesture of gratitude and respect for the work they’ve been undertaking in favor of the inclusion of Hispanic children and youth by providing them access to excellent quality, productive, and enriching musical education, the Mayor of the City of Houston, Sylvester Turner, declared this date as a day to celebrate this nonprofit organization.
In an emotional celebration, the team behind El Sistema Texas expressed their gratitude for the distinction bestowed upon them by the Mayor of Houston, as the highest authority in the city where the foundation operates. Since its establishment in 2022, the organization has served more than 150 young individuals in the metropolitan area, with a focus on reaching and serving over a thousand children in the next five years.
Inspired by Venezuela’s El Sistema of children and youth orchestras and choirs, the founders of El Sistema Texas have set the main objective of inclusion and providing the opportunity to experience orchestra and choir practice, instilling responsibility, camaraderie, and respect from a young age.
El Sistema Texas was born as a program of musical education and extracurricular inclusion for Hispanic children in primary school. It achieves this through the creation of orchestras and choirs as tools for social organization and humanistic development, establishing diverse pathways that allow music to become an integral part of everyday life for all.
For the CEO of El Sistema Texas, Álvaro Carrillo, this proclamation is recognition for all those individuals who have contributed to this rewarding experience over the past year. Especially to our children and their guardians, who motivate them to continue bringing this dream to life, which is only just beginning.
