Longy School of Music of Bard College called us after seeing the video we produced for Bard Early College in New Orleans. It is a beautiful thing when a music conservatory that is housed in Cambridge, Massachusetts with a second campus in Los Angeles calls upon a New Orleans production company. Somehow we made the logistics work and spent a frigid week in Massachusetts in November. Since then we have made several trips back to Cambridge to shoot additional material, including with the conductor of the LA Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel. I have grown fond of this long-term project (now a year in existence) as it has given me an opportunity to explore the intersection between art and society, to be the forefront of El Sistema, and to speak with bright, fantastically bright musicians and thinkers.
