Past Event

Toes tapping, brain mapping

Join us for an afternoon of jazz with a side of science about how and why music touches us so deeply.

Jazz musician Helen Sung will perform and neuroscientist and storyteller Paula Croxson will talk about how music shapes our emotions, thoughts and memories.

This program is designed for people with dementia, their care partners, friends and families.

This event is a partnership between the Zuckerman Institute, Arts & Minds and The National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
