Filmmakers Jamie Bernstein and Elizabeth Kling have been following Play On, Philly! since day one for their documentary - "Crescendo! The Power of Music" - about kids participating in two El Sistema-inspired youth orchestra programs -- POP in West Philly and the Harmony Program in Harlem, NYC.
Crescendo! The Power of Music will premiere in this year's Philadelphia Film Festival and will have two screenings, as follows:
, World Premiere, Ritz Bourse Theater
, Prince Music Theater
The screening will include a live POP performance.
You will be truly moved when you experience Play On, Philly! through the eyes of several of our students like Zebadiah and Raven. Visit
