I called the Music Director for the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras (GNOYO), Jean Montès, today to try to set up a time to sit down and learn more about the great work he's doing with and within the communities of New Orleans. After picking up the phone, the first words he uttered were a question, a challenge:
"Are you ready to change the world?"
Well, are you?
Questions of the day:
What does it take to transform the life of a child?
What does it take to transform a community?
How can that transform you?
