Longy’s El Sistema Summer Academy is designed for students from El Sistema-inspired and community-based programs across the Greater Boston area and beyond. This program will foster friendships, enhance musical artistry, develop creative music-making skills, and promote leadership. We look forward to hosting Boston’s finest young musicians for two weeks of music immersion and inspiration.
Join us for a one week professional development residency about Collective Composition, a pedagogical approach that facilitates student improvisation as a basic building block of the compositional process. This intensive and interactive residency is embedded in Longy’s annual Sistema Summer Academy.
