Sistema Scotland is a charity set up in the belief that children can gain huge social benefits by playing in a symphony orchestra.
The charity uses music making to foster confidence, teamwork, pride and aspiration in the children taking part - and across their wider community. Sistema Scotland exists to develop orchestra cenres on the ground in Scotland. These are known in the community as Big Noise.
The first is in Raploch, Stirling. the second is in Govanhill, Glasgow. There are plans for further centres across Scotland.Read more about Sistema Scotland
