Less than two years ago, the airwaves were filled with reports of another devastating earthquake. In May 2008, the Sichuan quake rocked Central China - almost 70,000 people were killed, and millions were left homeless. Phil Kates had been following the news of the earthquake as the Philadelphia Orchestra made its way from Tokyo to Seoul to Beijing. He wasn’t sure what to do. He wrote in his journal - “what possible use could a violin player be to children suffering from the end of their world?” Yet in his almost 30 years with the orchestra he’s learned the power of music. He went, by himself, to play for children who were living in the tent cities. Dick Gordon talks with Phil about bringing the job of music to people devastated by loss after an earthquake.
