Music as Medicine: Renée Fleming and Antonio Damasio in Conversation

Join a forward-thinking discussion with opera star Renée Fleming, neuroscientist Antonio Damasio, and LA Opera CEO and president Christopher Koelsch about the connections between music and the brain—and the very real possibility that music is part of the solution to intractable problems like chronic pain and cancer. The discussion will be interwoven with live musical performances by LA Opera’s Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artists. Listen and learn about the role music and other arts can play in tackling the most difficult diseases and improving health and wellness.

Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative.

Admission is free. Reservations required.
