Sistema in Norwich is a new and independent project based on the Venezuelan El Sistema music education and social change programme, made famous by the world renowned Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra. El Sistema has inspired children all over the world and helped them to improve their life chances.

For three and a half years, NORCA (Norfolk & Norwich Community Arts) was part of a pilot a programme funded by the UK government which provided over 1,000 Norwich school children with musical, social and personal development, and created twoorchestras made up of young children from the Larkman and Catton Grove areas of the city.  Learning from existing work by El Sistema and the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra which is the most famous example of what El Sistema can achieve, Norwich has seen the development of a ground-breaking project that improves the lives of some of the city’s most deprived children through participation in music.

The pilot programme was called In Harmony Norwich and was part of a 3-year national pilot that included Norwich, Liverpool and Lambeth, funded by the Department for Education.

When funding for this pilot came to an end Sistema in Norwich was created to continue this work in the existing schools (Catton Grove and Larkman Primary). Additionally, Sistema in Norwich is now available to a wider range of schools and will be more flexible in the way that it delivers music education and social change through music. The priorities are individual and social development through the skills required to learn music, play an instrument, and work as a team member in an orchestra.

Sistema in Norwich is currently supported through the schools’ own budgets, sponsorship and funding from Norfolk Music Hub and local Trusts. In order to develop a full Sistema programme, a fundraising appeal will be launched in the autumn.
