Five Years of Sistema Side by Side!
Longy’s Sistema Side by Side Series grew out of a generous gift from Garth and Lindsay Greimann in 2013. In five years, the program has grown from 35, to over 110 young musicians! By attending the Gala, you can help us make the next five years an even bigger success.
We are proud to announce this year's Guest Artist will be Maestro Thomas Wilkins, Principal Conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Music Director of the Omaha Symphony, the Boston Symphony Orchestra Germeshausen Youth and Family Concerts Conductor, and the Henry A. Upper Chair of Orchestral Conducting at Indiana University Bloomington!
About Longy's Sistema
Side by Side Series
The Sistema Side by Side Series places mentoring of young musicians at its core. Throughout the year, Longy conservatory students mentor children from El Sistema-inspired programs across Massachusetts, and these intensive weekend rehearsals give the children the opportunity to deepen their musical skills, meet new faces, and make new friends. In the process of rehearsing together, they learn that hard work and dedication can open doors to new opportunities for themselves—opportunities like performing (twice!) with charismatic Music Director of the LA Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel.
