About Sistema in Norwich

Sistema in Norwich works to transform the lives of children and young people in through participation in music, seeking to help children realise their potential and succeed across all areas of their lives.

This is done through engaging children in learning to play a musical instrument and being part of an orchestra, starting at 7 years of age and continuing up until 18. These children are part of the Colegate Nucleo Orchestra.

The orchestra does a number of performances each year and is often the focus for collaboration with other organisations or orchestras.

Children can take part in the Teen Sistema from Year 6, who took part in Sistema in their primary school and are moving (or have moved) on to secondary school.
