Congrats to Christine Taylor Conda!

Christine Taylor Conda, Director of the Reach*Teach*Play music education programs at Ravinia, has been named Chair of the El Sistema USA board of directors for a one-year term. The mission of El Sistema USA is to support and grow a nationwide movement of programs inspired by El Sistema—the immersive music education process originally developed in Venezuela that puts instruments into the hands of children to begin playing in orchestras immediately—to effect social change through music for children with the fewest resources and the greatest need. Taylor Conda has been a member of El Sistema USA’s board for two years.
 
“Christine Taylor Conda brings the experience in education and social justice leadership crucial to advancing the work of El Sistema USA. I am excited to begin our partnership in supporting the national movement of El Sistema, passionately building communities and opportunity for all through music education,” said Katie Wyatt, Executive Director of El Sistema USA.
