Event Description:

High-quality healthcare combines with the power of music to heal the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – at Eskenazi Health. Learn how music has the power to enhance health while enjoying a performance from the Indianapolis Children's Choir.

We turn to the power of music for inspiration, comfort and entertainment, but music can also provide a powerful healing influence. In fact, music has proven to be effective in treating a wide variety of conditions, from stress and depression, to addiction and pain management, to healing and recovery after surgery. This event will have a panel of experts, featuring Marianne Tobias, founder of the music program at Eskenazi Health and ISO Musicologist, ISO concertmaster Zachary DePue, and CEO of Eskenazi Health Lisa Harris, M.D. discussing their thoughts on the power of music, with a particular focus on music’s role in the healing process. The panel will be followed by a special performance by the Indianapolis Children's Choir (ICC), including a song performed jointly with Zachary DePue. Together, Eskenazi Health, ICC, and the panel of experts will demonstrate the power of music to transform lives with a backdrop of the inspiring environment of Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital.

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 8 due to limited seating.

Presented by Marianne Tobias Music Program at Eskenazi Health and the Indianapolis Children’s Choir.
