Inspirations: Orchestra for the Dying

Jorge Bergero is a musician, but he doesn't just perform in concert halls. He brings musicians to hospitals and care homes to play for the sick and elderly.

Cellist and Outlook Inspirations nominee Jorge Bergero set up Music for the Soul, a volunteer group of professional musicians who take music to the people who can't make it to concert halls. They travel across Argentina and Latin America performing in homes for the aged and hospitals. The project was inspired by his former girlfriend, a fellow musician who died of cancer.
