Message from the Director

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we announce the creation of Encore! Sistema Quebec/Programme musical Encore!Sistema Québec; Quebec’s first and only independent organization exclusively dedicated to delivering El Sistema – inspired programs to Quebec’s children and youth.

Encore!Sistema’s design aims to meet social objectives and serves as a direct solution to problems such as bullying and violence. Through Encore!Sistema we aspire to support teachers, inspire administrators, engage parents and families, build communities, sustain partners and help students achieve their full potential.
