Mark your calendars - Harvard is going to be hosting a symposium "exploring the neurological, therapeutic, and social benefits of community singing."
On Friday, April 11, the group Joyful Noise will be joining the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum for a concert under the direction of Alice Parker. The concert will be at 8 pm in Sanders Theatre, and tickets are available through the Harvard Box Office.
On Saturday, there will be an all-day symposium where musicians, researchers, and disability advocates will explore the intersections of music and disability, neuroscience, wellness, and community. Renowned conductor, composer, and educator, Alice Parker, and Joyful Noise, a chorus of adults with significant physical and/or neurological disabilities, will lead symposium attendees in song.
For more information, and for the symposium schedule, check out the Harvard website, or the Facebook event.
Alice Parker is not to be missed - if you are free, you should definitely try to get to one or both of these events!
