WHO ARE WE ? A free music program for young people in south London, Ontario, Canada. It has been solidly documented that this helps the growth of youth who might not otherwise have access to quality instruction. El Sistema South London was founded and developed by a volunteer retired teacher, Steve Wolsley, in 2012. With zero budget, and incredible passion, he has developed the group to where it is now.
WHERE ARE WE NOW? Here is our June 2016 wrap-up concert where 31 "veterans" (who have at least 1 year experience), prepare to surprise and delight the audience. With a repertoire stretching from the Masters to today's Pop, we study it all. We even performed outdoors on a cold morning in May for the MS Walkathon. Our smaller group, the seniors Octet, has performed at several schools, retirement homes, and churches to pleasant reviews.
With a waiting list of another 20 youth, we are poised for growth. We need more instruments, supplies, transportation to our concerts, instructors, music, ...imagine the list of needs.
