Monagas State Youth Symphony Orchestra
The Mathurin Chamber Youth Orchestra of Monagas is one of over 300 orchestras of the Venezuelan System of Children's Youth Choirs and Orchestras internationally recognized as " El Sistema". The National System of Children's Youth Orchestra and Choirs in Venezuela is a social and cultural work of Venezuelan State. It was conceived and founded in 1975 by teacher and Venezuelan musician, Jose Antoino Abreu, to systematize the instruction and individual and collective practice of music through symphony orchestras and choirs, as instruments of social organizations and humanistic development.
It recognizes the orchestral movement as an opportunity for personal development, intellectually, spiritually, socially and professionally, rescuing children and youth at risk of empty, misguided and deviant youth. The visit by the Mathurin Chamber Youth Orchestra marks the fifth collaborative event between the Saint Lucia School of Music and "El Sistema" through the efforts of the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela with the support of the Government of Saint Lucia.
Each visit by the Venezuelan delegation has assisted in the further development of music outreach programs in Saint Lucia intended to be implemented across the island.
