Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra

The Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra is the fruit of "El Sistema," an important social programme tackling poverty in Venezuela founded by conductor José Antonio Abreu. Its enormous success in encouraging poor children to set up their own orchestras has won international acclaim. They performed works by Beethoven & Stravinsky at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Athens, Greece on 23 June 2010 conducted by Gustavo Dudamel as part of the Athens and Epidaurus Festival
