Music and the Mind: A Conversation with Renée Fleming

Nicholas Music Center

7 p.m. Tuesday, February 26, 2019
A panel discussion with the celebrated opera star about the power of music as it relates to health and the brain. Inspired by Fleming's Sound Health initiative, which encourages research into the links between music and wellness, Fleming and leading neuroscientists will discuss how our brains process music, and how listening, performing, or creating music can contribute to better health.

Featuring panelists Daniel Schneider, director of the Rutgers Dementia Clinic and medical director of the Robert Wood Johnson Deep Brain Stimulation Clinic; Wendy Su, lead medical director of neuroscience at Novartis; and Sunil Iyengar, director of the Office of Research & Analysis at the National Endowment for the Arts. Moderated by Eduardo Herrera, assistant professor of musicology at Mason Gross. Co-presented with State Theatre New Jersey.
