True Inspiration

I remember in one of my NYU classes, this video was shown to all the music majors about the youth orchestra in Venezuela.  The Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar was created for the youth of Venezuela of poor socio-economic backgrounds.  I remember watching children worshiping their instruments, sleeping with them at night, as they knew it was the greatest thing in their life.  Music can have such a strong impact on a child and can completely change their life.  Watch the video below and you can see how music has truly changed the lives of someone AMAZING and young musicians! (PS, the video we watched was a BBC special which I cannot locate)
