Catalyst Conversations: Music and Empathy

Next Event: Thu, Sep 12, 2019, 06:30pm08:00pm

Music occupies more areas of our brain than language does–humans are a musical species. The power of music and its ability to create empathy are exemplified in both the speakers, each in their own practice and their respective activism. This promises to be a fascinating conversation between Julie Leven, violinist and performer who runs Shelter Music Boston and Peggy Codding, Music Therapy professor at Berklee College of Music. Music is a catalyst that uplifts all of us, whether we are listening and receiving or performing and giving.

Catalyst Conversations was founded in 2012 to open a critical path for dialogue between the arts and sciences through programs, educational outreach and public events.
