Want to learn how the process of making music can affect your brain?

Join AARP and attendees from across the U.S. for a FREE One Day University Virtual Lecture and live Q&A with Dr. Indre Viskontas of the University of San Francisco.

The event will stream online on September 8, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. ET.

AARP membership is not required.

In this lecture, neuroscientist and opera singer/director, Dr. Indre Viskontas, will illustrate the wide-ranging power of music to shape our brains, heal our pain and strengthen our communities.

The musician’s brain is hailed as a model of neuroplasticity, because of the many ways that learning and performing music changes it.

But even listeners’ brains are altered, as brainwaves entrain to rhythms and brain activity and neurochemistry track the rise and fall of the music.

Dr. Viskontas will explain the magical way in which music can bring us together.
