January 27 is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s 250th birthday. In honor of the event, Greta Munger is giving a talk entitled “In the Mood: The Real Mozart Effect” discussing how scientific research addresses the claim that listening to the music of Mozart actually makes you more intelligent.
If you’re in the area of Davidson, NC (about 20 miles north of Charlotte), stop by and see her talk, along with several others presented on this special day, including “Mozart in Hollywood” by Neil Lerner and “Grief, Denial, and a Piano Sonata” by Mauro Bothello. The talks are free, and start at 2:30 in Tyler-Talman Hall on the Davidson College campus. I know I’ll be there!
As long as you’re here, you may want to catch one of the many concerts presented that day, capped off by a sing-along Mozart Requiem. Here’s the full list of events.
