El Sistema is a phenomenon from Venezuela that gained even more international acclaim when the National Children’s Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela and the White Hands choir enchanted their audience at the Salzburg Festival during their international debut. They perform works including Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, Bernstein’s Mambo, and Strauss’ Radetzky March. The program includes the White Hands Choir concert and documentary about this chorus comprised of children with physical and mental handicaps, hearing difficulties and even deaf-mute children. Their singing merges with choreography of their flowing hand movements. The program features Latin-America folk songs and Piazzolla arrangements as well as choral works by Mozart.

 “This is, quite simply, the future of music.” - Sir Simon Rattle
