Encore: Orchestrating Change – A documentary about the world’s first orchestra for people with mental illnesses, with Guests Margie Friedman and Barbara Multer-Wellin, Executive Producers

ORCHESTRATING CHANGE is the documentary film that tells the inspiring story of Me2/Orchestra, the only classical music organization in the world for people with mental illnesses and those who support them. Led by a once world-renowned conductor whose own career was shattered by his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, the Me2/Orchestra’s exhilarating performances challenge societal stereotypes about mental illness.

Playing with Me2/ is transforming the lives of the musicians who face stigma and discrimination on a daily basis. They break down stereotypes, reconnect with society, foster acceptance, friendships and most important, realize their own abilities. The film’s final performance at a major concert hall will be an emotional triumph not just for the musicians but for the audience as well.
