El Sistema in western Massachusetts!

I am happy to announce that I have started my new position as Program Director for El Sistema at Berkshire Children and Families in Pittsfield Massachusetts.
I am very excited to bring El Sistema to western Massachusetts and will be sure to keep you all posted on how the program develops.
I am hard at work dreaming up a "Baby Choir" like the one I witnessed in Barquisimeto. If you want to read more about my experience in Venezuela please visit Tony Woodcocks blog here where I was invited to be a guest blogger. There you will find pictures and videos from my 5 week internship in Venezuela  back in May.
Stay tuned for more updates. For now I am getting to know Pittsfield and the communities that Berkshire Children and Families' El Sistema program will serve. I can't wait to share 'notes' with all of you as we bring this dream to life.
You can find out more about the project by reading the press release in the Berkshire Eagle which is the local paper for Pittsfield Massachusetts.
