El Sistema USA Partnership


New Partnership with El Sistema USA!

TCP is thrilled to announce a new partnership with El Sistema USA, through which El Sistema USA Member Organizations will be provided arrangements of "Hear Our Song", the theme song of TCP's debut initiative, Hear Her Song. The theme song iscomposed by Katy Pfaffl and arranged specifically for El Sistema-inspired programs by Joshua Cerdenia.

El Sistema USA is a nationally-recognized organization committed to supporting and growing a nationwide movement of programs inspired by Venezuela's "El Sistema," to effect social change through music for children with the fewest resources and the greatest need. Currently, El Sistema USA is comprised of a membership of over110+ organizations in 35+ states serving close to 20,000 students.

A musical celebration of women leaders, Hear Her Song honors them with new songs inspired by their words, and since its inception in 2017, the initiative has commissioned forty songs from leading songwriters and composers worldwide. Participants so far include honorees Hillary Clinton, Justice Sonia Sotomayor,
Malala Yousafzai and composers Emily Estefan, Shaina Taub,
and Georgia Stitt.

For years, El Sistema-inspired organizations have worked with students, families, and their community to ensure students with the fewest resources and the greatest need have access to high-quality music education. El Sistema USA shares in TCP's vision of giving voice to issues of identity and culture through music, both look forward to many outstanding performances of "Hear Our Song" in El Sistema-organizations around the U.S.

TCP and El Sistema USA have worked to deliver arrangements that fit for a variety of ensembles, each of the arrangements below are available in "Beginner / Intermediate" as well as "Intermediate / Advanced":

- Arrangement for chorus (Soprano 1, Soprano II, Alto)
- Arrangement for strings (Violin 1, Violin 2, Cello, Double Bass)
