Corona Youth Music Project
SATURDAY JULY 29, 2017 | 4:30 – 6 PM
Join Corona Youth Music Project (CYMP or Núcleo Corona) for their debut concert at Socrates! Started in 2010, CYMP is a tuition-free music education program that promotes social inclusion in NYC. It follows the philosophy of El Sistema, a movement of social action through music that started in Venezuela in 1975: every child has the right to excel as a member of a musical ensemble. The project emphasizes four basic values: striving for artistic excellence is a tool to learn discipline and commitment; work in a safe and joyful environment engages deeper learning; music has to be accessible without any discrimination, and; participating in large ensembles such as symphony orchestras and choirs enables a stronger sense of community, pride and solidarity.
FREE. NO RSVP REQUIRED.
Presented in partnership with the Corona Youth Music Project
