Can classical music change lives? In this book, the American novelist Candace Allen argues that it can and does. Her investigation takes her to Venezuela, where the SistemaA" scheme has offered thousands of young people a route out of the ghetto mentality through virtuoso musical training, bringing global fame to the charismatic conductor Gustavo Dudamel; to the Middle East, and Daniel Barenboim's East-West Divan Orchestra in which young Israelis and Palestians play side by side; and to Soweto and a pioneering opera project. But this is also a personal journey in which Allen describes what classical music meant to her as a black girl growing up in segregated America.
