In its second decade, the annual Music and Brain Symposium brings together scholars, scientists, and artists across multiple disciplines to explore aspects of music as a human behavior. This year's symposium will broadly address aspects of musical performance and expressivity.
On Saturday, talks will be presented 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Note: Lunch will not be provided, contrary to earlier announcements. At 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Saturday, students from CCRMA and related departments will present posters on research broadly related to the theme of the symposium. A reception will follow the day's program.
