Sistema Progam Comes To City

Earlier this month, we invited you to drop off used musical instruments at our CBC offices here on Main Street. We were collecting them on behalf of the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra's Sistema program. It's expanding to Saint John, after  two successful years in Moncton. Sistema is an afterschool program that gives kids who may not normally have the opportunity, a chance to learn a musical instrument. Aaron McFarlane is the Sistema Centre Director in Saint John, he speaks with Steven about the new program here.
