About 7/4 Venezuelan Ensemble:
The 7/4 Venezuelan Ensemble was born from the friendship of seven young members of El Sistema (the National System of Youth Orchestras of Venezuela), who came together to extend the boundaries of academic music to include Venezuelan folk music, Latin American music and jazz.
In 2015, the 7/4 Ensemble toured with maestro Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar
Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela (SBSOV). This time, they appeared in San Francisco and Los Angeles, where they participated in academic activities and performed in concerts such as the 2015 LA Phil Opening Night Gala.
