“Teaching The Life Of Music” Community BBQ & Documentary Film Screening

Film Synopsis

Inspired by a man with a vision, “Teaching the Life of Music,” tells us the story of Maestro Jose Antonio Abreu, El Sistema and the impact that a developing country like Venezuela is having on a developed country like ours. We witness El Sistema’s ability to transform poverty and violence into healthy living through the passion and discipline inherit in music education.

“What caught my interest about “Teaching The Life Of Music” and El Sistema was the transformational effect music made on the children,” says Narrator and Actor Cory Monteith, “and how that transcends boundaries, languages, cultures, and borders, with a huge effect. This musical education can be reproduced anywhere in the world, and can change a child’s life forever.”
