Sistema Norwich offers young people the opportunity to access musical instruction and experience being part of an orchestra, an opportunity that many of them would not otherwise have.


The programme seeks to improve lives, strengthen communities and nurture relationships through music, and now covers the whole of the city of Norwich, whilst targeting children and young people with least opportunity, whether for social or economic reasons. It is based in our newly modified headquarters on Colegate.


Sistema relies upon the support of donors.  Regular giving allows us to plan for the future, become more sustainable and grow our programme, reaching out to even more children.  As a Friend you could become a valuable part of making these opportunities happen.

Friends receive an annual update and get invited to a range of special events, such as pre-concert gatherings, talks and presentations.

To become a Friend, please click on one of the links below and set up a monthly payment at the level you feel able to support us (this is via TotalGiving, which is a reputable and safe 3rd party fundraising website that does not charge charities).


Alternatively, if you would rather set up a Standing Order yourself, please fill out the form via the button below and we will be in touch with our details so you can set up a Standing Order with your bank.

And, if you are not sure and you would like to speak to someone, then please call the office on 01603 760529 (ext 1) and ask to speak to James Kinsley, the Friends Scheme Administrator.
