For those of you not familiar with TED, it is a wonderful resource site filled with incredible videos and speeches on a wide variety of educational topics.  Each year the TED Prize is presented to several innovative thinkers who are given $100,000 and one Wish To Change The World.  The video pasted below is a high definition video clip of a youth orchestra from Carracas, the conductor of which is a student of Jose Abreu, creator of El Systema, a national music education program in Venezuela that has garnered incredible reviews.

In this video the orchestra performs Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10, 2nd movement, and Arturo Márquez' Danzón No. 2 under the direction of  Gustavo Dudamel.
