The CSO is participating in a unique collaborative chamber music concert taking place at the Roland Hayes Auditorium on the UTC campus on August 23rd at 7:30 pm. This event is free of charge and open to the public. The concert, aptly named “Chamber music for body and soul,” will highlight the therapeutic as well as aesthetic elements of music. Music Therapy Gateway In Communications, Inc. (MTGIC), a local non-profit organization utilizing biomedical music techniques to help special needs children, received a grant from the UNFoundation of Chattanooga to initiate a concert series to draw attention to the benefits of music in a therapeutic setting. Several CSO musicians will collaborate in this event as they join with MTGIC and the UTC Department of Music in the performance of a traditional concert designed to give the audience a unique outlook on the benefits of music. A pre-concert lecture at 7:00 pm will precede the performance as MTGIC’s Executive Director Martha Summa-Chadwick explains how music affects the brain, and how it can be intentionally directed for therapeutic use in motor, speech, and cognition afflictions.
