We’re thrilled to share that our CSBM team, Karen Daniels, Kamilah O’Brien, and Lola Barbarash pictured here with WHIN’s Executive Director Charlie Ortiz,  had the honor of attending the WHIN Music Community Charter School’s Inaugural Gala on May 30th.  It was an incredible evening filled with beautiful music, inspiring stories, and the celebration of the transformative power of music education in our community.

WHIN incorporates the El Sistema approach in which every student participates in both Orchestra and Choir every single day in the El Sistema tradition. El Sistema is a unique social program that was founded in Venezuela to build community through excellence. The goal is to effect social change through intensive daily ensemble music education. Working in an ensemble enables all children to experience being an asset to their community and grow into citizen artists prepared to make the world a better place.

We’re proud to support WHIN Music Community Charter School’s mission and grateful for the opportunity to be part of such a special event.  Here’s to many more years for this incredible charter school!
