Music City Youth Orchestra Presents Crescendo: The Power of Music
Join Music City Youth Orchestra as it introduces and educates the community on the benefit of El Sistema and the Harmony Project.
To generate sustaining funds for Music City Youth Orchestra’s outreach to low-income children, the organization offers a special screening of Crescendo: The Power of Music, a documentary that follows three kids (one in Harlem and two in Philadelphia) who are at schools that have embraced El Sistema, the phenomenal youth orchestra program from Venezuela that brings focus, confidence, and a positive trajectory to children living in low income areas. Surprises, heartbreak, and joy come in big doses as we watch these three young people, their dedicated teachers, and the community around them, all responding to the mysterious power of music.
Music City Youth Orchestra’s purpose in bringing this film to Nashville is to introduce the El Sistema program to the community as well as highlight its own version of it called The Harmony Project. Music City Youth Orchestra is on a mission to attract and educate the youth of our community about the life importance of music. It hopes The Harmony Project will be an exemplary program for creating opportunities for low-income and minority youth to enjoy the benefits of learning and performing live music.
