33 years ago, Dr. Jose Antonio Abreu gathered 11 students in a parking garage in Caracas, Venezuela and taught them to play music. Over the last three decades, Dr. Abreu's organization, "El Sistema" or "The System" has grown considerably and now teaches music to 300,000 of Venezuela's poorest children. This inspiring video shows the power of Dr. Abreu's vision and the incredible change that ensemble music has brought to the poorest regions of Venezuela.
