About the Event

Maestro Gustavo Dudamel will participate in a panel discussion about “El Sistema,” a publicly financed music education program for underserved children founded in Venezuela in 1975, which has now grown to provide music access to young students around the world. An alumnus of the program, Maestro Dudamel will be joined by individuals who have similarly devoted themselves to advocating for accessible systematic music education: Elsje Kibler-Vermaas (Los Angeles Philharmonic, Vice President of Learning), Anne Fitzgibbon *98 (Harmony Program, Founder and Executive Director), and Lou Chen ’19 (Founder of the Trenton Youth Orchestra). The panel will be moderated by Stanley Katz, Professor of Public and International Affairs and Director of the Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies at the Woodrow Wilson School.

Sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School’s Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies.
