          Perhaps one of the most important Music Education developments to reform the near educationally bankrupt Music Education system in the United States, with budgets being cut and academic priorities out of step with realities, especially in the value of quality programs that can increase academic accomplishment as well proven by statistics.  Students who study music instrumentally and develop the skillsets and multi-tasking knowledge associated with it become on average 30% smarter than those who do not take this opportunity.  In my opinion El Systema should replace the current system as by their policies and concepts all students are taught by a professional who actually plays the instrument, and the music training is geared to orchestral high goals with the great music associated with it rather than Bands that tend to be geared to entertaining sporting events and less worthwhile music.  I hope this soon will be at the front lines of attention to all Schools and Educators.

 Gustavo Dudamel, rehearsing with the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles in 2009, is the most famous product of El Sistema.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic has seized the initiative in guiding a national teaching program based on El Sistema, the Venezuelan-based movement that weds music teaching and social work. The orchestra announced on Tuesday that it would open an office, host yearly conferences and support a training program to sustain the effort.

Bard College, in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y., and the Longy School of Music, in Cambridge, Mass., are joining the orchestra in a partnership to support the movement and will grant master’s degrees in teaching the Sistema method. Bard and Longy are in the process of merging.

The partnership will hire two staff members and serve as a national reference point for Sistema-style “nucleos,” as the individual teaching centers are called, said Deborah Borda, the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s president and chief executive officer.

El Sistema aims to use the teaching of classical music to improve the lives of poor children and to help underprivileged neighborhoods. It has involved some 400,000 young people in Venezuela and spread to a number of countries, capturing the imagination of leading performers, teachers and executives in classical music.

The Philharmonic-Bard program, inspired by El Sistema, will be called Take a Stand. Its first major act will be a conference in Los Angeles from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1, involving participants from around the country. Then, starting in June, a first round of about 15 students will embark on a one-year master’s program, spending much of their time working at the Philharmonic’s Sistema-like project, the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles, and at a charter school in Delano, Calif., associated with Bard, said Karen Zorn, Longy’s president. Longy and Bard are developing the curriculum.

“The rubber is hitting the road here,” Ms. Borda said.

The fit with the Los Angeles Philharmonic is natural. El Sistema’s most famous product is Gustavo Dudamel, the orchestra’s music director and a driving force behind its outreach efforts.

Part of the challenge for Sistema supporters is figuring out how to adapt the program to countries outside Venezuela, where it is government-financed and highly centralized. In the United States individual programs have popped up in various formats.

“El Sistema is an inspiration,” said Leon Botstein, the president of Bard. “It’s not a formula.” He added that the main goal of the partnership was “trying to train a cadre of teachers to bring classical music to populations that normally wouldn’t  have it.”

The new program fills a void created this year when the New England Conservatory in Boston divorced itself from a nascent effort to organize the loosely related programs around the country called El Sistema U.S.A. That effort grew out of a New England Conservatory program to train 10 fellows a year in El Sistema’s methods. That program is in its third of five years.

The two programs, Ms. Borda said, are not in conflict. The New England Conservatory’s fellows are learning how to administer nucleos, she said, while Take a Stand students will study how to teach in them.

“I think they’re complementary,” she added. “This is different from El Sistema U.S.A., in that it’s three organizations that have very specific resources and will undertake very specific work.”

Ms. Borda said that the program would cost in excess of $1 million a year and that financing for it was being built into the Philharmonic’s regular budget.

Eric Booth, a consultant to nucleos around the country and a senior adviser to El Sistema U.S.A., played down the formal role of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s national efforts. He said El Sistema U.S.A. was still searching for a role.

“People are rising up in the limbo time,” Mr. Booth said. “The L.A. Philharmonic, as far as I know, is not setting out to provide for all the needs of the field.”

He praised the partnership as “a really good, solid, needed next step forward for a growing movement.” The biggest problem for the more than 50 nucleos around the country is teachers who understand the distinctive nature of El Sistema’s mission.

Take a Stand, Mr. Booth said, “provides not just a flagship recognition that there is something distinctive about that teaching and learning, but is going to actually produce teachers that the field desperately needs.”

Remix Competition through 30 September 2011

About the Competition

The musical focus of our competition is the music of Gustav Mahler. He was an Austrian composer born in 1860, an extraordinary conductor and a composer writing music that reflected his difficult childhood, his life and loves as well as his ever searching quest to understand the meaning of life. He wrote nine complete symphonies, and represented at the the turn of the century the cusp of the late romantic period as well as the breakaway to searching for new forms and means of expression. His First Symphony is devoted to expressing the connections between nature and the turbulences of life and love. He lived the latter part of his life in New York dying at the age of 51 in 1911.

Now in 2011, commemorating a hundred years since Mahler died, the Berliner Philharmoniker invite you to create your own remix of the sound tracks from the first movement of Symphony No.1 by Gustav Mahler, which we have uploaded on the site for you. You simply enter the SoundCloud site and upload your final remix by 30 September to the site.

Using the stems uploaded here, use some or parts thereof, as well as your own musical ideas on the subject and enter the Remix Contest_Berliner Philharmoniker.

All entries should be submitted by 30 September 2011. As a guideline, entries can be ca. 3-5 minutes long. The prizewinner will be announced and notified on 4 October. Entering the contest requires you however to first read the rules of the competition and agree to the conditions of entry.

Please read the rules and then agree by ticking the box under submit before uploading files!

Contact: Gloria Gottschalk, (212) 799-5000, ext. 207






Juilliard Clarinetist Liam Burke is Soloist in the Copland Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra

The Juilliard Chamber Orchestra, Juilliard’s conductorless ensemble, performs Stravinsky’s Concerto in
D (“Basel Concerto”); Copland’s Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra
with Juilliard clarinetist
Liam Burke; and Mozart’s Symphony No. 38 in D Major, Prague (K. 504) on Monday, November 21 at 8 PM in Alice Tully Hall.

FREE tickets are available at the Janet and Leonard Kramer Box Office at Juilliard. Box Office hours are Monday through Friday from 11 AM – 6 PM. For further information, please call (212) 769-7406 or go to

Stravinsky’s Concerto in D (“Basel Concerto”) was commissioned by philanthropist and Swiss conductor
Paul Sacher, who founded the Basel Chamber Orchestra in 1926. He commissioned Stravinsky to write a work for the 20th anniversary of the ensemble. Paul Sacher conducted the premiere of the work in Basel on January 27, 1947.

Copland’s Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra was commissioned by Benny Goodman, who was interested in pieces for non-jazz ensembles that he could perform as a classical clarinetist. The work was premiered in November 1950 on a broadcast by the NBC Symphony with Benny Goodman as the soloist and Fritz Reiner conducting.

Mozart’s Symphony No. 38 in D Major (Prague) appears to have had its premiere on January 19, 1787 with the composer conducting. Mozart was invited to visit Prague by several citizens of the community after his opera,
Le nozze di Figaro, was enthusiastically received there in December 1786. Mozart and his wife traveled to Prague in the beginning of 1787 and brought the D-Major symphony as a gift. The work is in three movements: Adagio-Allegro; Andante; and Finale.

Juilliard clarinetist Liam Burke is in his last year of the accelerated bachelor and master of music degree program at Juilliard, where he studies with Jon Manasse. In spring 2011, he was awarded the Peter Mennin Prize for Outstanding Achievement and Leadership in Music, an honor conferred upon only two students that year. He was selected to perform the Nielsen Concerto at the Aspen Music Festival and School as the winner of the 2010 Winds and Harp Concerto Competition. Other solo appearances include performances with the Colorado College Summer Music Festival and the Senior Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Mr. Burke has been invited to perform with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, American Ballet Theatre Orchestra, Stamford Symphony Orchestra, New World Symphony, and the New York String Orchestra. In 2010, Mr. Burke performed as guest principal clarinetist with the Philharmonie der Nationen on their three-week international tour of Germany and the United States. An enthusiastic member of the new music community, Mr. Burke was invited to play E-flat clarinet in John Adams’ Chamber Symphony at the Kennedy Center with Mr. Adams conducting.
