Music Is Important

Jose Antonio Abreu Bestows Musical Opportunities To Poor Venezuelan Kid

In Venezuela, there is a huge gap between rich and poor. His mission was to help poor Venezuelan kids to improve the quality of their lives through learning classical music. Abreu states "Music has to be recognized as an ... agent of social development in the highest sense, because it transmits the highest values -- solidarity, harmony, mutual compassion. And it has the ability to unite an entire community and to express sublime feelings."
