Venezuela's El Sistema on 60 Minutes

Just got through watching this on 60 Minutes. Have a watch and listen. It sure warmed my heart! The episode shows the program in Venezuela for teaching classical music to poor children and the amazing transforations these kids go through. There is hope for the world!

Damn, I missed it! Thanks for the link, though, Charly. No better proof than G. Dudamel that Venezuela's Sistema clearly works. I'm excited for the city of LA (my hometown) when Dudamel takes over, as I've read about the similar initiative he will engage in. Who knows? Our next Bernstein may come from Compton or Inglewood. How great would that be!

This sounds kind of self-serving I know, but my brief thoughts on Dudamel & El Sistema that I jotted down last October...
