Dr. Indre Viskontas, guest speaker and soprano
Music is a powerful mnemonic: a beloved piece can launch us back into childhood, help us learn the alphabet, or bring back a lost soul from the brink of dementia. What can neuroscience tells us about music’s magic? Let Dr. Indre Viskontas, scientist and soprano, take you on a musical journey through your brain, analyzing and performing Barber’s masterpiece Knoxville: Summer of 1915, and demonstrating how clever composers and musicians can harness your brain to evoke nostalgia, empathy and a sense of connection with others.
