Bravo Waterbury! and Waterbury Youth Chorus collaborated to put together a choir concert full of uplifting music.
Bravo Waterbury is a cutting edge social development and music education program for students at Children’s Community School and Brass City Charter School in Waterbury, Connecticut.
An education program of the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, Bravo is inspired by Venezuela’s “music education miracle” known as El Sistema, a program for social change started over 35 years ago by economist and musician José Antonio Abreu.
Bravo students study music five days a week for up to three hours a day. Additionally students receive homework tutoring, physical activity, and a host of social development projects throughout the year.
Bravo students are engaged physically, mentally, and emotionally through creative expression. Currently 200 of Waterbury’s most vulnerable students participate in this intensive free educational program.
