News 2012: (BE) Gent Festival van Vlaanderen: "How Music Saved Venezuela's Children"
(From a recent Gent Festival van Vlaanderen newsletter)
Although not directly related to early music field, but certainly possible with early music orchestras, a post in a recent Gent Festival van Vlaanderen newsletter makes mention of the “remarkable accomplishment of a great humanist, José Antonio Abreu, who dedicated his life to set up the 'Sistema' in 1975, an extraordinary music and social project which has been running in Venezuela in an attempt to transform the lives of the nations poorest children. …” (YouTube Quote).
Visit the YouTube website to view the wonderful video which may inspire some early music orchestras to do the same.
Also visit the Gent Festival van Vlaanderen (15-29 sep 2012) website for more information of the website and of ticket availability.
