On a Positive Note: Renee Fleming Brings Health and Wellness Conversations Online

Soprano Renee Fleming has been actively exploring the relationship between music and wellness for several years, including through her Sound Health initiative in her role as Artistic Advisor to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. As the weeks of shelter-in-place and quarantine have stretched out, she felt that such an approach might help address the stress and anxiety many of us are feeling and has launched a weekly webseries called Music and Mind Live.

 

The series launched last Tuesday with a discussion about loneliness, and this week features conversations on the effects of community choirs on wellbeing and a new health research project by the National Endowment for the Arts looking into music and health.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
