July 24, 2017

Researchers from Longy and arts research firm WolfBrown have just completed three years of the first-ever U.S. multi-site, multi-program study on the effects of El Sistema programs on the participants. On Friday, July 21, Drs. Judith Bose, Dennie Wolf, and Steven Holochwost presented the findings at the Take A Stand symposium in LA to a packed hall.
