YOLA National, El Sistema USA, and the Collective Conservatory have teamed up to create a virtual seminario for 3rd–5th-grade students from El Sistema programs across California from July 20 through 24, 2020. The Collective Conservatory will lead rehearsals and studio sessions and collect student excerpts created throughout the week to create a final, collaboratively produced track. This live session will be the culmination of the Collective Conservatory seminario.
