Youth Orchestra of the Americas held its Spring Benefit on April 5 at the Organization of American States. The dinner program began with a video presentation narrated by YOA artistic advisor Placido Domingo. Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero spoke of “healing the world through music” and enchanted her listeners with a classical improvisation of “When the Saints Go Marching In.” She donated a private recital, with the caution of “Don’t make me wash the Dishes,” which raised an additional $7,000 for YOA’s Global Leaders Program, a tuition-free year-long fellowship program empowering the next generation of social entrepreneurs.
