Crescendo Detroit was founded in January 2013 and is dedicated to El Sistema inspired programming.  Crescendo evolved from the work of Progression Inc., an organization that provides in school music programming with a primary focus on using jazz and hip hop as a way of teaching important curriculum.  Crescendo Detroit uses a child centric approach that combines the foundational principals of El Sistema, two of which are social change and accessibility and combine those with the best practices of US Music Education.  With that approach, we can change the lives of young people in Detroit.  Crescendo Detroit is the first El Sistema inspired program in the Detroit area.  Please check out the history of El Sistema at  www.elsistemausa.org.  Motown inspired Detroit in the 1960s and Crescendo Detroit will in 2015.
