A Mind of Music - Why Go To A Concert?

1 March 2016

Time: 5:30 - 7:00pm
Venue: The Octagon, Queen's Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, E1 4NS

Professor John Sloboda and other leading figures in Music Research

Much of the music we listen to in everyday life is accessed via recordings in our own private space. What are the reasons for attending a live music event?  What happens in audiences when they attend?  What are the benefits or disadvantages from doing so and how might this apply to our wider mental, social and emotional health and wellbeing?  This panel discussion will present cutting edge research into our understanding of live musical experiences, what happens during music performances and the role of the audience plays within musical events.

FREE ADMISSION, BUT PLEASE BOOK IN ADVANCE here.
