Due to storm-related scheduling complications, the first conversation, scheduled for Saturday, November 17, has been canceled.
The Self and Music
In Sunday’s discussion, we turn our attention to the exceptional power of music to reflect and speak to our innermost selves. How is it that even wordless music can be so eloquent? What influence does music have on how we feel, how we see ourselves, and how we see our place in the world? And how has the role of music changed through the ages?
