New York Philharmonic Wellness Series Offers Chance to 'Take a Breath'

A Tempo this Saturday (2/11 at 7 pm) looks at the Philharmonic's new initiative to provide wellness mental health with musical elements.

The New York Philharmonic this month is joining the growing numbers of musical organizations offering wellness programs with the launch of its Take a Breath series, and A Tempo this week is exploring how these workshops will bring together mindfulness and stress relief with a musical element. A Tempo host Rachel Katz will speak with NY Philharmonic Vice President of Education and Community Engagement Gary Padmore, as well as with two of the workshops' facilitators - Kendall Johnson-Smith and Sara Auster - about the series and the role the orchestra can play in providing mental health and wellness programs to the community.

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