With a little help from their conductor and a lot of collaboration, more than 150 school leaders, community members and music teachers took the stage Monday to learn about a musical method called “El Sistema” that might soon be spreading across the county.
Roosevelt STEAM Academy introduced a music program called El Sistema, which aims to create social change through music, at the beginning of the school year. That program, and El Sistema in general, will be discussed during a workshop at Goshen College on Monday, Jan. 12.
After obstacles facing similar Maple City Health Care Center programs came to light, a Goshen College student launched Martha’s Gift, a program that lets patients create items that will help the community in exchange for credit on their medical bills.
