A two-day event which brings together professionals in the fields of neuroscience, music therapy, performance, and education, director Ed Roth says the Music, Mind and Medicine conference may result in unexpected synergies and new research that furthers our understanding of how music affects us. 

 Dr. Roth and Cara Lieurance also discuss two public events offered by the conference: a concert by jazz violinist Regina Carter, and a Taiko drumming exhibition.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
