The mission of Josiah Quincy Orchestra Program (JQOP) is to ensure the long-term musical and social success of all students, and to positively impact them and their families through quality education and performance. JQOP is inspired by El Sistema, the Venezuelan program that uses intensive, joyful, and ensemble-based music instruction to teach children social-emotional skills. In the 2018-19 school year, JQOP will serve 200 students in seven ensembles, including six string orchestras of various levels (beginner to advanced) and an ensemble for students with special needs. All rehearsals take place before school at Josiah Quincy Elementary School in Chinatown.
