19 - Pre-Concert Talk: Music and Memory
18 July 2014 10:00 am
Helmsley, York, North Yorkshire YO62 5DW, UK
Joseph Houston and Michael Zev Gordon discuss how memories are expressed, evoked and awakened in music. We often strongly associate pieces of music with particular times in our lives; sometimes a person with advanced memory loss can still remember all the words to a song they learnt decades earlier; music can help Alzheimers patients recover memories; neuroscientists agree that information set to music is the easiest by far to remember. Join us for what should be a fascinating discussion.
