In this 'vivid story' (The Economist), Tricia Tunstall 'chronicles the origins and growth of Venezuela's acclaimed El Sistema national music education program' (Reed Johnson, Los Angeles Times), and illustrates its overarching goal: to rescue children from the depredations of poverty through music. Tunstall offers an absorbing account of Dudamel's life, from his upbringing in the Venezuelan city of Barquisimeto to his position as conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Tunstall travels to schools across Venezuela, sharing her first-hand accounts of El Sistema's ingenious model of music education. She then takes her reader to the classrooms of New York City, Baltimore and San Antonio, which have successfully implemented El Sistema style programs.
