Gustavo Dudamel’s Musical Misson – 60 Minutes – CBS News

I found this report from CBS’s “60 Minutes” moving and informative. I have recently written about El Sistema and Gustavo Dudamel is their greatest product so far. In this film we see how he took the job of resident conductor at the L.A. Philharmonic in order to start off the “El Sistema” approach with disadvantaged kids in the city. The result has been YOLA.. the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles.Watch out for the way that the ideas are spreading. The section on Baltimore is a pointer to the power of music to transform children’s lives… just as “El Sistema” transformed Gustavo’s life and has made him into the most sought after conductor in the world.
