The Sound of El Sistema

The Teresa Carreño Youth Orchestra contains the best high school musicians from Venezuela’s life-changing music program, El Sistema. Led here by Gustavo Dudamel, they play Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10, 2nd movement, and Arturo Márquez’ Danzón No. 2.

The Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra will be in residency at the Southbank Centre, London in April 2009.

For tickets go to http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk. Tickets are limited and dates are virtually all sold out.

‘Music-making this joyous is in a class of its own. If you hear of the orchestra coming within 500 miles of you, book straight away’ (Telegraph).
