Guest op-ed column
El Sistema U.S.A. is bringing the approach to the U.S., including the Canal area in San Rafael, in an exciting program called Enriching Lives through Music. ELM was founded by Jane Kramer, an oboist, who, years after receiving a PhD in urban policy from UC Berkeley, was awarded a grant to return to her music studies and embark on her dream of enriching the lives of underserved children.
