Neighborhood Concert: Members of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela
The Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela comprises 200 musicians, ages 16–30, who hail from El Sistema, Venezuela’s hugely successful social-action education program that brings music performance instruction to the country’s largely poor, underserved children. This energetic group of young Venezuelans was a hit when it made its New York premiere at Carnegie Hall in 2007. Experience this electric verve as members of this amazing orchestra perform as a chamber ensemble on Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concert Series in Pregones Theater.
