WolfBrown & Weill Music Institute Release Music and Health Care Paper

« Back

Jan 25, 2012

WolfBrown Associates, comissioned by the Carnegie Hall Weill Music Institute, has released Music and Health Care, a paper intended as a scan of the key research in the field about the relationships of these two topics.  The paper, by Lea Wolf, MSW and Dr. Thomas Wolf, was produced to ground the Weill Music Institute's work with their Musical Connections program within a broader understanding of theory and practice about the ways that music affects the lives of poeple invloved in the program.

The Musical Connections program brings free interactive performances, creative projects, and artist residencies to those in acute need in homeless shelters, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, and senior service organizations.  In the 2011-2012 season, the program will reach 8,000 people through programming created in partnership with host staff, government agencies, and first class musicians from diverse music genres.
