The Hispanic Children’s Symphonic Choir, the Hispanic Preparatory Symphony Orchestra, and the Hispanic Children’s Symphony Orchestra of El Sistema Texas elevated the roots of the Spanish-speaking community in the United States with their musical notes.
The children from El Sistema Texas captivated the spaces of Central Green Park in the city of Katy, Texas, during their performance as part of the scheduled programming for Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated annually during the month of September in the United States.
Over 150 people of different nationalities gathered, shared, and enjoyed this community concert, where the children who are part of the Choir and Orchestras of El Sistema Texas harmonized the evening with a repertoire that spanned classical musical pieces.
The concert was under the direction of teachers Jessica Colmenares and Rhomy López, co-founders alongside maestro Álvaro Carrillo of El Sistema Texas, an organization that recently celebrated its first year and works tirelessly with these children, demonstrating that art and music know no boundaries.
This community concert also served as a fundraiser, as the collaboration and contributions from the community help sustain this program of musical education and inclusion for Hispanic children in primary school age, through the creation of orchestras and choirs as instruments of social organization and humanistic development.
El Sistema Texas continues with its presentations in this last quarter of the year, with the Hispanic Heritage Concert scheduled for October 13th at St. John Vlanney Catholic Church, and the Christmas Concert Gala on December 17th at La Roca Church.
