ENTERTAINING SCIENCE: EVIDENCE THAT MUSIC HEALS, AND NOT JUST THE SOUL

March 4, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| $10

Roald Hoffman, Dave Soldier, hosts Joanne Loewy, director, Louis Armstrong Center;  Julie Gold, singer, songwriter

Joanne Loewy is a researcher, clinician and the Director of the Louis Armstrong Center forMusic & Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. She will be joined by Grammy-award singer-songwriter Julie Gold in tonight’s program. Music has been a force, at the intersection of science, nature, ritual, and art, since the beginning of recorded time. Music has historically served as an overture for war (and football games) but also has enriched more positive social events — of peace, in prayers, and for celebrations. And research on music’s influence in medicine has moved forward, as investigators reveal the potent impact of music’s capacity to influence the heart beat, and respiratory rate. The significance of the lullaby as a primary nurturance mechanism in neonates facing critical care will be shared by Joanne Loewy. She will show the impact of live rhythm and lullaby on infant vitality and parents’ stress level. Julie Gold will reveal the impact of song on society, as she shares her “From a Distance” -which was released during the Iraq war, and her medical “de-stress” tune reflecting her experience of “The Waiting Room”
