Posted on: June 23, 2011

Dudamel: Let the Children Play—a new documentary film about orchestras, conducting, and music as a path to addressing the educational crisis worldwide—will be screened at selected U.S. movie theaters tonight at 7 p.m. (local time). The League of American Orchestras is proud to partner with Fathom Events for tonight’s event, which marks the film’s premiere. In the film, Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and a product of the Venezuelan music-education program El Sistema, tells the stories of music’s impact on young people from around the world. For several weeks, the trailer for the film has been preceded by a public service announcement created specially for the League that showcases the extraordinary range of work that America’s orchestras undertake every day. The PSA is now available for viewing here. For more information about the film, including a list of theaters where it is being shown, visit http://letthechildrenplayonthebigscreen.com/.
