Music changes lives. At El Sistema Oklahoma, we see it every day. Our young musicians look forward to learning a new instrument, practicing their music, and performing what they’ve learned. You can join us in this life-changing work. When making your charitable gifts this year, please consider giving to El Sistema Oklahoma. Your generosity will support current students and help us reach even more children.

El Sistema Oklahoma was founded in 2013 by Phil and Cathy Busey as a mission of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in partnership with the Wanda L. Bass School of Music at Oklahoma City University. El Sistema Oklahoma established its own 501(c)(3) status in June 2015 but remains connected with our original partners.  The expectation is that children will continue to grow in the program for many years, continuing to improve their musical and social skills, while ultimately returning to our community as teachers, mentors and coaches for future children.
