Bravo Waterbury! Is an educational initiative of the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra. It is an intensive after-school music education program for students at Children’s Community School in Waterbury, Connecticut. The program is inspired by Venezuela’s “music education miracle” known as El Sistema, a program for social change started over 30 years ago by politician and musician Jose Abreu. In collaboration with The Leever Foundation, The Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, Children’s Community School and other community partners, Bravo uses music education as a bridge between the arts sector and marginalized and under-served communities. The program teaches musical, social and emotional skills aimed at helping students overcome challenging circumstances and become successful members of their communities.
