Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, continues to spread the story of El Sistema, the educational program and social initiative from Venezuela that immerses children in the world of music, art, teamwork, discipline, and creativity as a way of improving lives. The documentary DUDAMEL: Let the Children Play will be shown in theaters across the country on Thursday, June 23, telling the story of this powerful program through the stories of some of the young lives that have been touched by it.

The two-hour event will also include Crescendo: Why Music is Life, a special 20-minute CNN en Español production that chronicles the importance of music in children’s lives and explores the role of music in society. Well-known Latin singers, musicians and CNN en Español anchors - including Emilio Estefan, Daisy Fuentes, Luis Enrique and more - share insights about their enduring relationship with music, from their earliest memories to the impact it continues to have on their lives today.
