How Music Affects Your Brain

Boston-area researchers review and discuss the newest research on how music making changes brains.

Hearing music and making music is a multisensory and motor experience. Music moves us, creates emotions, and it engages pleasure and reward regions in our brain. Boston-area researchers will review and discuss the newest research on how music making changes brains and if applied appropriately can heal and repair the mind and brain. Panelists: Drs. Lisa Wong, Psyche Loui, Suzanne Hanser, Nadine Gaab, and Gottfried Schlaug.


Admission is free with a Boston Early Music Festival Pass.

A Festival pass provides you with admission to the Exhibition, the BEMF CD Store, Symposia, Dance Workshops, Performance Masterclasses as auditors, Family Day, and Pre-Opera Talks for the entire week, as well as discounts to select Fringe Concerts. Festival Week Passes may be purchased in advance from the BEMF Box Office; Week Passes ($40) and Day Passes ($10) will be available at the BEMF Welcome Center at the Courtyard by Marriott Boston Downtown or at any of these events during the Festival week.
