Sistema de Orquestas de Guatemala

From April 22-May 6, 2017, a group of Western University Music Education students travelled to Guatemala to interact with diverse communities and engage in music making with various educational organizations. One of these organizations included El Sistema de Orquestas de Guatemala.

Sistema de Orquestas de Guatemala (SOG)
 is a a non-profit organization that seeks the development, promotion of values, prevention of violence and the inclusion of the country's most vulnerable children and youth through the collective practice of music. Their vision is to cultivate in Guatemalan children and young people the values ​​necessary for their academic, intellectual, professional, spiritual, social and personal growth that impacts their families and communities.

Our group immediately felt connected to and impacted by our time at SOG, and we didn't want this connection to end there. We want to extend a helping hand to this incredible organization and continue to help their program grow and flourish! At present, they are hoping to relocate to a safer area, and any funds raised would be of incredible help and service to them.
