“Play – but with your heart, not with your head!” Katie Wyatt leads a workshop on "El Sistema," a moving documentary about Venezuela’s unique music education system. The film follows Venezuelan visionary José Antonio Abreu over the past three decades, exploring how he changed hundreds of thousands of lives. Under Abreu's guidance, children from streets dominated by the gun battles and gang warfare are taken into music schools, given access to music, and taught through the model of a symphony orchestra how to build a better society.
