El Sistema Oklahoma

Two Programs. One Mission.

El Sistema Oklahoma 

El Sistema Oklahoma is a non-profit 501(c)3 founded by Cathy and Phil Busey, St. Luke’s Methodist Church, and the Wanda L. Bass School of Music at Oklahoma City University through a creative partnership. El Sistema provides free music opportunities five days a week after school during the school year to students attending Oklahoma City Public Schools. We provide free snack and transportation, instruments, instrument repairs, and translation services. No audition is required so that our students have equitable music experiences. El Sistema is proud of empowering Oklahoma City youth through music for the last ten years!


El Sistema Oklahoma has grown into TWO well-respected, successful and unique after-school programs serving public school students in Oklahoma City and Edmond. El Sistema's Orchestral Program offers many program experiences including a free instrument, large ensemble rehearsals and performances, composition, music fundamentals, leadership opportunities, and mentorship programs. El Sistema's Vocal Program provides vocal musical experiences for students of ALL abilities, including neuro-diverse and neuro-typical students and students with physical conditions. Both programs are completely free and no audition is required.
