The Center for Music-In-Education will host a public symposium on November 7, 2007 discussing El Sistema, dubbed the “Venezuelan Music Education Miracle.” The symposium will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will feature a panel of invited guests from across the nation and throughout Boston. A showing of the film “Tochar Y Luchar” will open the afternoon session. Further information is available at www.mieatnec.org/venezuelasymposium. Although the Symposium is free and open to the public, we ask that those interested please RSVP via the Symposium website:
A reception follows the Symposium, and will take place in Brown Hall from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
At 8:00 p.m., the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela will perform at Symphony Hall. Concert tickets are available via the Boston Symphony website (www.bso.org). We advise that you purchase them right away, since supplies are limited, and the concert is expected to sell out!
