Meet the Sistema Fellows

The first two sets of graduates of NEC's Sistema Fellows Program—the classes of 2010 and 2011—were previously known as Abreu Fellows. Three sets of Sistema Fellows—the classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014—followed in their footsteps. In all, 50 Sistema Fellows are now developing El Sistema–inspired programs throughout the United States and in other countries.

Follow the links on this page to learn more about the 50 Sistema Fellows.
