Here is a message from her:
In case you're in the Berkshires on Thursday 7/19, please join me for a reading/performance evening at First Congregational Church in Stockbridge to introduce my new book, Scales to Scalpels: Doctors who Practice the Healing Arts of Music and Medicine.
I'll be sharing some of my thoughts about the many connections between music and healing, from the perspective of the medical musician, caregivers and patients, and will touch a bit on the exciting field of the neuroscience of music.
In the spirit of Albert Schweitzer, who was devoted to Bach, healing, and service, the presentation will include excerpts from Bach's Goldberg Variations especially chosen to augment the remarks and performed by Tanglewood Music Center faculty members Norman Fischer, Matt Dane and Andy Jennings.
I hope you can make it and join in the discussion about music and healing! The evening is free and open to the public.
Lisa M. Wong, M.D.
