Conference: "Musical Minds"

Monday 16 April
6.30pm - 7.30pm

What are the biological mysteries hidden in the practice of an instrument? What are the effects of music on human behaviour and on the development of our brain? This conference will be led by Donald Glowinski, senior researcher at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences, a research center dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of emotions and their effects on human behaviour and society.  

Donald Glowinski is a researcher, consultant and “Music & Science” coordinator at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences (CISA) at the University of Geneva. His career includes a higher education in Science, Humanities and Music. Since 2017, he is in charge of scientific studies for the DEMOS orchestras, a social project instigated by the Paris Philharmonic. Mr. Glowinski has received an award from the Fondation Bleustein-Blanchet for Vocation as a result of his research and achievements.

The debate will be followed by a concert performed by laureates of the Menuhin Competition London 2016.
