Inspired by Film, Orchestras Mobilize to Fight Hunger

More than 160 orchestras in 45 states are expected to take part in food drives in advance of the spring release of a movie about a Juilliard-trained musician with schizophrenia who becomes homeless, the Associated Press reports.

The Soloist, starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. and scheduled for release April 24, “reminds us that classical music has the power to sustain spirits and change lives, even under the most difficult circumstances,” said Jesse Rosen, president of the League of American Orchestras. Food collected in drives beginning in late March will be distributed to local organizations through the national antihunger network Feeding America.
