Music is the universal language of mood, emotion, and desire. Music and the Mind not only celebrates the power of music on the human mind, but also the contributions of great classical composers who are known to have suffered from mental illness. This lecture-based recital will feature great works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Gershwin, and more, while shedding light on their struggles with mental illness. Join us as we listen and learn about great composers of our past. Featuring Georgia Southern University Piano Professor, Dr. Benjamin Warsaw. Lecture notes given by Dr. Justin Addington, Minister of Music at First Baptist Church, Savannah.
