About the Presenting Organization

The Corona Youth Music Project (or Núcleo Corona) is the first “€œEl Sistema”€ inspired program in Queens, New York. “El Sistema is the common name given the now global movement of social action through music, especially youth orchestras. It serves this diverse community and its neighboring areas.  The project includes an after-school programs and intensive seminars and camps. This “€œnúcleo”€ will support at least one children’s symphony orchestra and one choir, along with instrumental and musicianship training. It serves the neighborhood by providing a safe, fun place for children to develop discipline, persistence, and self-esteem through music, and become productive valued members of society.
