Oregon BRAVO Youth Orchestras

Based on the groundbreaking El Sistema program begun in Venezuela fifty years ago, BRAVO’s motto is Social Change Through Music.¬† BRAVO provides free musical instruments and instruction to youngsters from some of Portland’s poorest schools – introducing classical music to youngsters who might otherwise never have the opportunity.¬† In addition to learning skills such as concentration, self discipline, collaboration and communication, they have the life-changing experience of discovering their own creativity and abilities. BRAVO now serves seven schools in North Portland including Elementary, Middle and High Schools.
