One of the conductors from the YOA tour, Gustavo Dudamel, received this glowing review in the LA times. I wish I could have gone to the performance. I have to admit that although I liked Dudamel, he wasn't perfect two years ago when he conducted us, but I am extremely hopeful for his continued success. He came from the amazing Venezuelan youth orchestra system (toccar y luchar!), and he could truly be a positive influence for the growing Latin community in the states, both in terms of drawing an audience and inspiring kids to play instruments and become involved in classical music.
