[CLASSICAL] One of the biggest stories in 21st-century classical music, Venezuela’s popular music-education program, nicknamed El Sistema, has given thousands of young students, mostly from poor families, access to training in Western classics. It hit the world stage (along with a 60 Minutes segment) when the Los Angeles Philharmonic appointed a 26-year-old El Sistema product, Gustavo Dudamel, as its music director a few years ago. More than 50 countries have started their own sistemas, with 80 in the U.S. alone. Now Portland joins the system with a new organization and program starting this fall at Rosa Parks Elementary for children in kindergarten up through third grade. This by-donation fundraising concert includes appearances from Portland’s own El Sistema alumnus, Venezuelan-born Oregon Symphony and FearNoMusic violinist Inés Voglar, and other OSO musicians, including music director Carlos Kalmar. Plus there will be Portland Youth Philharmonic music director David Hattner, members of PYP and Metropolitan Youth Symphony.
