The second chapter in our podcast series is about personal stories, those intimate connections between a student and a teacher that, like a pebble in a pond, send waves radiating outward. Few stories are more compelling or influential than that of Gustavo Dudamel, the Venezuelan-born conductor—and now Music Director of the Los Angeles Philarhmonic—who found his own pebble-in-the-pond experience in his home country’s visionary music education and social program, El Sistema. This podcast was developed from our October 2011 live event.
Chapter Two: Personal Stories
Gustavo Dudamel is featured in this podcast along with Amos Yang, assistant principal cellist of the San Francisco Symphony, Afa Sadykhly Dworkin, vice president and artistic director of the Sphinx Organization, Jesse Rosen, president and CEO of the League of American Orchestras, and Mark Clague, professor of music at the University of Michigan. The podcast is hosted by Steven Winn, American Orchestra Forum moderator.
