Music and the Brain Symposium 2018: Performance
In its second decade, the annual Music and Brain Symposium brings together scholars, scientists, and artists across multiple disciplines to explore aspects of music as a human behavior. This year's symposium will broadly address aspects of musical performance and expressivity.
On Friday, the afternoon talks will be followed by an evening concert (program TBA) at 8:00 p.m. on the CCRMA Stage.
On Saturday, talks will be presented 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., with lunch provided. At 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Saturday, students from CCRMA and related departments will present posters on research broadly related to the theme of the symposium. A reception will follow the day's program.
