Dudamel created the Dudamel Foundation with Maria Valverde, pushing to further spread music and give opportunity to young, gifted musicians and creating community through respect, discipline and inclusion. And this year, for the first time, the Dudamel Foundation and the LA Phil are co-presenting their first Encuentros between July the 19th – August the 4th in the USA. Encuentros is an orchestral training programme combined with workshops, concerts and master classes, all under the leadership of Dudamel with other classical music legends, such as Berliner Philharmoniker, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Opéra National de Paris and Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra, aimed at transforming lives, inspiring and uniting people. The programme will end with epic, beautifully orchestrated concerts, and the 4th of August will be the finale in the tour. Joining them for the evening performing bass and vocals will be the multi-Grammy-winning vocalist and composer Esperanza Spalding. It will be a soul rousing, inspiring concert, so be there to enjoy the amazing music.
