“The Human Need for Melody”
Concert and Conversation with Debra Lew Harder
Why are human beings drawn to melody? How does melody affect our brains, our hearts, our community? Dr. Debra Lew Harder explores the latest thinking in neuromusicology to answer these questions, and she’ll play some of the most compelling melodies written for solo piano in works by J.S. Bach, Michio Miyagi, Beethoven, Scott Joplin, Ingrid Arauco, Francis Poulenc, and Chopin.
