El-Sistema inspired programmes in NZ

Sistema NZ


Sistema Aotearoa has operated since April 2011. It began as a partnership between the APO and the Ministry for Culture & Heritage (MCH). Several other New Zealand communities have begun operating programmes encouraged by interest in the Sistema approach in New Zealand.

Sistema NZ is a consortium of 4 active programmes that have received some government funding:

       Sistema Aoteaora, Otara Auckland

       Toi Akorangi, Sistema Whangarei

       Arohanui Strings, Sistema Hutt Valley

       Sistema Waikato, Hamilton Centre for Music

Te Rōpu El Sistema

In 2013, Sistema Aotearoa initiated Te Rōpu El Sistema (TRES). TRES exists as a special interest group for the support and promotion of El Sistema-inspired activity and is also an informal network of operational or nearly operational, programmes that have adopted, or share similar social and musical aims.
