It is reported in Caracas that the Simon Bolivar Orchestra and its conductor Gustavo Dudamel have been engaged for the closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics.
There has been no confirmation yet from London, but the source of the story is Dude’s mentor, the Sistema founder José Antonio Abreu, so it seems likely to be true.
Here’s the report (in English).
UPDATE: The official response from London Olympics.
FINAL UPDATE: A ‘no’ from Dude’s people.
