Totally Worth the Fifteen (Not 60) Minutes

Check out this piece from 60 Minutes, a feature on 24-year-old Venezuelan conductor, Gustavo Dudamel. It’s not so much his conducting, but his background in the Venezuelan music system that’s fascinating. How about a country-wide program that takes kids from the poorest neighborhoods and gives them an opportunity to learn music? Something to learn from here, I suppose.

Watch it NOW! (Seriously, watch it).
