Every day phenomenal work is being done throughout the world by thousands of children in El Sistema-inspired music programs. Soundscapes in Newport News, Virginia is one of these programs in the business of building transformational life skills in at-risk youth. At Soundscapes, I am the Program Manager and a Teaching Artist. I decided to make a short documentary, a ten-minute film about Soundscapes. I invite you to watch and share the film. It is the story of one program, but really it is the story of all El Sistema-inspired programs throughout the United States. I am excited to share it with you, and I know that it will help you to explain what we do, as we continue our mission to create opportunity for as many as possible.
