Kelly Carter is the founder and executive director of El Sistema Minnesota. This still-new youth orchestral program is modeled after El Sistema in Venezuela, the birthplace of this social movement.
Carter and her team are getting ready for a kind of graduation event for 10 first-year students of El Sistema Minnesota. Her description will warm your heart. She speaks to Classical MPR's Steve Staruch about El Sistema and the upcoming event.
