Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel and Los Angeles Philharmonic President Deborah Borda are widely credited with leading the most successful symphonic organization in the country, designing a forward-thinking and innovative approach to shaping the role of orchestras in the 21st century. They will discuss the many aspects of their work together, which includes running the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles inspired by Venezuela’s El Sistema music education program promoting social development for children and teens. The event will also feature a performance by the Longy School of Music’s Sistema Side by Side Orchestra—composed of student musicians from El Sistema programs across Massachusetts—conducted by Maestro Dudamel.
