This film tells the inspiring story of Me2/Orchestra, the only classical music organization in the world created by and for people with mental illness and those who support them. Started by Ronald Braunstein, once one of the world’s leading maestros, the orchestras’ mission is to erase the stigmatization of people living with mental illness through the creation of beautiful music, community, compassion and understanding….one concert at a time. Most important, it is changing the lives of the musicians and audiences in powerful and surprising ways. There are currently two Me2/Orchestras: one in Boston and the other in Burlington, Vermont. The film follows several of the musicians and the conductor for two years as they share their daily lives living with mental illness–the setbacks and the joys. “Orchestrating Change” culminates in a triumphant concert at a major music hall combining both Me2/ orchestras for the first time.
