Official Launch Concert - Raploch

Children from Stirling’s Raploch estate performed alongside some of Scotland’s finest classical musicians today, in a community concert launching a groundbreaking musical and social phenomenon to the UK.

Venezuela’s “El Sistema” orchestra movement has touched the lives of thousands of children since its founder, Maestro José Antonio Abreu began giving music lessons in a Caracas carpark over 30 years ago. Now his methods will be employed in Raploch in an orchestra called “Big Noise”.

Dr Richard Holloway, chairman of Sistema Scotland, the charity set up to bring the idea to Scotland said: “I have seen the astonishing difference these orchestras have made in Venezuela. I am convinced they can have an equally seismic effect here.”
