The socio-musical programme Sistema Cyprus is excited to announce the completion of a life-time dream and the beginning of a new chapter in its efforts to bring social change through music. The organisation is finally getting its own permanent home, just off Ledras Street, in the centre of old Nicosia.
Furthermore, the programme is expanding its activities with the operation of a second string and percussion orchestra in September 2022.
This dream will come true thanks to Mohari Hospitality, a global hospitality and real estate investment company that operates in Cyprus, Canada, Costa Rica, Spain, and the United States.
Mohari Hospitality recognized the positive impact that the programme has on young people of Cyprus. Thanks to their support Sistema Cyprus will have a permanent home, its own facilities and will be able to create a second orchestra.
Sistema Cyprus welcomes Mohari Hospitality to its family and is looking forward to a prosperous collaboration that will bring joy and smiles to many children!
We are extremely proud to share that four of our young musicians had the honour to participate in ODE – Orchestre Démos Europe initiative, a collaboration between the Sistema Europe Association (which Sistema Cyprus is a member of) and ODE.
This took place in the last week of February, 2022 at the Philharmonie de Paris.
The project involved young instrumentalists from 15 Sistema Europe programmes, meeting their peers to form a unique 120-member youth orchestra of socially oriented projects from all EU countries.
They performed on Saturday, 26 February 2022 at the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez at the occasion of France’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
The concert was streamed live via ARTE Concert and Philharmonie Live, with Corinna Niemeyer and Aurélien Azan Zielinski conducting the orchestra in a programme including Mussorgsky, Grieg and Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” as signature piece.
