A great vote of confidence for young  area musicians.

” Sistema Toronto ” has been awarded a $30,000 grant from the Toronto Community Foundation.

The funding will  strengthen  the “Playing to Potential” program and deepen its roots in the community – while expanding throughout Toronto and the GTA.

The  program  is a collaboration between “Sistema Toronto”  and the Toronto District School Board – offered at no charge in the culturally diverse Parkdale community.

Students receive  intensive after-school instruction from teachers and professional artists for two hours at the end of every school day.

After three years each child will have received over one thousand hours of musical instruction, practice, and performance.

“Playing to Potential” is modelled after the internationally acclaimed “El Sistema”  program, which has been teaching music to over a million youth in Venezuela for more than 35 years.
