In the world of classical music, the Simon Bolivar National Youth Orchestra is unique. The musicians, kids mainly, are not graduates of some conservatory or music school - they're alumni of the school of hard knocks in the slums of Venezuela. And their orchestra is about the exuberance of youth. It recently made its Carnegie Hall debut in New York City with its celebrated young conductor.
Many of the kids come from neighborhoods which are so poor, desperate and crime-ridden, that hope is often extinguished in children at an early age. El Sistema, as it's called, began in 1975 and is based on the unorthodox belief that what poor Venezuelan kids needed most was classical music.
