POSTPONED – Music and the Aging Brain: A Discussion and Concert

WHEN: POSTPONED – Monday, April 6, 2020,

WHERE: Sherwood Center for the Arts, 22689 SW Pine Street, Sherwood, OR

Due to statewide COVID-19 precautions enacted on March 11, this event has been postponed. We hope to announce a new date soon! We will contact ticket holders for information on refunds or transfers.

Our brains undergo numerous changes that affect memory, motor, and sensory functions as we age. Many of these changes are amplified in diseases like Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Could music limit the effects of aging and neurodegenerative diseases?

At this event, learn from Dr. Larry Sherman, a musician and Professor of Neuroscience at the Oregon Health & Science University, and singer/songwriter Naomi LaViolette as they explore how listening, practicing, and performing music influence the brain, and how these activities could impact brain aging and disease. They will also discuss Naomi’s work as a pianist, vocalist, arranger, and composer with Steven Goodwin, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and the Saving His Music project, which has received prominent coverage in national and local news.

Join us and enjoy a multi-media presentation that combines live music and visuals with discussions about cutting edge science. The presenters will be performing live music ranging from Debussy, Leonard Cohen, and the Beatles to original pieces by Ms. LaViolette and Steven Goodwin.
