HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The Washington Heights & Inwood (WHIN) Music Project is an El Sistema-inspired initiative in partnership with Our Saviour's Atonement (OSA) Lutheran Church and the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA).
After a summer camp and just a few months running our programs from October 2012 we are very proud to have served over 100 children in their musical development. In this short period of time, our students have participated in concerts at El Museo del Barrio (as part of the Super Sábado in December 15), at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music (as part of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra residency at Carnegie Hall) as well as at Our Saviour's Atonement Lutheran Church as part of the Latin American Cultural Week of New York City.
This is possible by implementing our vision to create a pipeline of support through orchestral and choral practice very similar to the El Sistema model. Furthermore, our goal is to create an "ecosystem of orchestral practice" in the community to help improve the conditions of all children and youth, especially of those who usually don't have access to these opportunities.
If this sounds like music to your ears, do not waste more time: contact us and help us develop a better community through music!
