Music and the Mind with Sam and Sarah

About This Concert

We don’t always understand why our brains enjoy music and art, but the way we process music—and the mental gymnastics great composers go through to create it—can tell us a lot about our own humanity.

Fun Facts

  • Minnesota Orchestra Principal Conductor Sarah Hicks and violist Sam Bergman host this fascinating exploration of the way our minds engage with music on a neuropsychological level.
  • The mythologizing of composers and their mental health has a long history, but what of our own minds as we take in the work they created? What happens to our brains as we listen to music we love, or music we hate?
  • This program offers an intimate perspective on featured composers and themes through lively discussion and wide-ranging musical selections.
  • Join us for a pre-concert happy hour, local craft brews and a chance to mingle with musicians onstage after the performance.
