Renée Fleming’s Music and the Mind presentation explores the power of music as it relates to health, including childhood development, music therapy, and discoveries that are changing our understanding of the brain. Ms. Fleming’s presentation is inspired by the Sound Health initiative, which she spearheaded as part of her role as Artistic Advisor to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The initiative, established in partnership with the National Institutes of Health and in association with the National Endowment for the Arts, explores and brings attention to research and practice at the intersection of music, health, and neuroscience.
