VR Film Symphony Created to Encourage Young Folks to Engage with Classical Music #MusicMonday
Absolutely fascinating endeavor from Gustavo Dudamel via BBC:
Dudamel wants the film to help inspire young people to plunge into classical music, and for the symphony eventually to be the sound of a world of different ideas harmonising together.
Introduced to music through El Sistema, a network of youth orchestras in Venezuela with a strong community dimension, he has leveraged his own meteoric career to develop projects aimed at inspiring and uniting children and youth in dozens of countries around the world.
