Conductor Gustavo Dudamel’s Musical Mission

Conductor Gustavo Dudamel's Musical Mission - 60 Minutes - CBS News.

Is it possible to re-fresh music education in the US? Check out El Sistema USA.

Everything is going for him - critical international acclaim, recording contracts, and last fall, he took over the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Ask him about it, and he'll tell you he owes it all to a remarkable program in his native Venezuela, a social program that has used music to change his own life and the lives of millions of children there. Venezuelans call it "El Sistema" - "The System," and Dudamel wants to bring it to the U.S., where he believes it can work wonders.
