A new form of music
performed by individuality
This unique chorus includes many children from social minorities, such as those with hearing or visual impairments, wheelchairs, autism, and vocal difficulties.
The blind children can sing with their voices, and the children with vocal difficulties wear white gloves to express the lyrics of the songs, hence the name White Hand Chorus.
Turn CHALLENGES into
El Sistema Connect brings
music to life with children who dare to make a difference,
creating an inclusive future
that resonates from the stage to the world.
Why We Do It: Our Purpose and Passion
Disabilities and poverty impact many children in Japan, limiting their access to music education. Notably, disparities in circumstances contribute to inequalities in cultural experiences. We firmly believe that engaging in music-making provides these children with confidence and self-esteem.
