Ang Misyon, a three-year-old El Sistema program in The Philippines, received a special visit by two New York Philharmonic Teaching Artists in July.

They went as teachers and to serve as a resource, but, as many who travel find, the exchange of learning flowed both ways.
Read the blog entry of Theodore Wiprud (NY Philharmonic Education Director), “Fast Learners: What Makes Ang Misyon So Special?” to find out what made this experience memorable for the visitors from New York.
