Sistema People

The students at Sistema Winnipeg are impacted by the many wonderful, talented and caring staff in the program! Thanks to the partnerships with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (WSO), Seven Oaks School Division (SOSD), and Winnipeg School Division (WSD), we are fortunate to have staff and supporters from all partners working with Sistema Winnipeg! These individuals are educators, inspirations for the students, and freelance performers and teachers in the Winnipeg music community!

If you are interested in booking any of the Sistema Winnipeg team to perform at your event, please contact Jeffrey Acosta, Education & Sistema Manager at
