Orchestras Feeding America was established after the release of the film The Soloist starring Robert Downy Jr. and Jamie Fox. The plot accentuated a true story about Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez and a homeless man, Nathaniel Anthony Ayers. Ayers was a string musician who trained at Juilliard as a result of a mental illness he became homeless. This story emphasized music’s ability to transpose not only

Ayers was a string musician who trained at Juilliard, and became homeless as a result of a mental illness. This story emphasized music’s ability to transpose not only sound, but emotion and circumstance. Consequential to the film’s display of music acting as a catalyst to construct human relationships, the League of American Orchestras was inspired to team up with Feeding America.
