Treat yourself to a rapturous performance by El Sistema’s Teresa Carreño Youth Orchestra, Venezuela’s finest high school musicians, many born into poverty.

Conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, they play Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10, 2nd movement, and Arturo Márquez's Danzón No. 2 at a February 2009 TEDTalk.
