Instruments are to music as words are to language. You can’t have one without the other. The kids of the Sistema Armenia Youth Orchestra have a lot to say—give them the violas, cellos, and basses they need to speak volumes!
There are kids waiting in line to join the Sistema Armenia Youth Orchestra. We want to buy them 2 cellos, 4 basses and 4 violas, making it possible for the existing SAYO group to grow indefinitely as instruments are passed down and shared. These instruments will not only give the children something to play, but will be vital tools in teaching them the values of leadership, teamwork and community. The directors of the organization want to create junior and senior orchestras as the building blocks for a future SAYO whose musicians could potentially number in the thousands.
