Welcome to our new affiliate member Santa Marcelina Cultura

09 December 2009, Brazil

We are delighted to welcome our new affiliate member, Santa Marcelina Cultura, of Brazil.

Santa Marcelina Cultura is a Social Organization for Culture that manages four major programs of the São Paulo State Music Scool (EMESP – Tom Jobim), the Youth Groups of EMESP – Tom Jobim and the Campos do Jordão International Winter Festival.

The values that guide the activities led by Santa Marcelina Cultura are the same for all four programs: transparency, excellence in teaching, high quality of services and professional ethics. All of those are possible thanks to the entrepreneurship and experience of almost 100 years of the Sisters Marcelinas Congregation in Brazil managing schools, colleges and hospitals. Additionally, the Congregation has established a lasting partnership with the government of the state of São Paulo for more than 12 years in healthcare management and, since December 2007, in the cultural sector.

More information about the Santa Marcelina Culture is available (in Portuguese) from their website.
