Shostakovich and the mysterious healing

“What is this mysterious medium that moves and heals us?” How does music work as a therapeutic and wellness tool? What does it look like? Where did these practices begin? This show starts out with Dr. Sangeeta Swamy’s experience with the Chagall String Quartet, and how an audience member’s story of healing led her to discover the therapeutic powers of music. Learn about professions such as sound healing, music practitioners, music therapy, and music thanatology and find out about the work these healers do with everyday children, teens and adults across the country.
