The Dudamel Foundation is dedicated to the belief that the arts play an essential role in creating a more just and peaceful society. Music, in particular, provides a universal language that transcends our differences and has a unique capacity to build bridges of understanding among all peoples. Music does more than nourish the human spirit. Its very practice instills focus and discipline, respect for others, a spirit of collaboration, and many other positive values that make us better citizens of the world. The Foundation's goal is to expand the opportunity to experience music for as many children and communities as possible.
Gustavo and Eloisa Dudamel are co-chairs of the Foundation, which was established in 2012.
We are grateful to Rolex for being an early supporter of the Dudamel Foundation.
