El Sistema is a project that originated more than 40 years ago in Venezuela. The idea of an educational programme for all children without distinction became a reality in the Czech Republic in 2015 thanks to Milada Cholujova, the founder of the Harmony Foundation. PETROF is proud to be a partner of this delightful project, so we are overjoyed at the latest success of eight children from a children’s orchestra, who together with children from all over Europe played at the famous Odeon amphitheatre in Athens as members of the Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra. Take a look at this excerpt from this splendid concert which the children were given the chance to experience, and which they and many more will long remember.
“Let us show children the beauty of music, and music will show them the beauty of life.” José Antonio Abreu, founder of the El Sistema system of musical education.
