Singing as Transformational Practice: From Hospice to Prisons
Can singing help us to heal and even transform ourselves? And how does singing with others differ from singing alone? Rhonda Miller, a music therapist at Iowa City Hospice, sings with and to people in their final days and can attest to the power of voice, while Mary Cohen (Music, CLAS) leads the Oakdale Community Choir and is currently writing about the effects of choirs and music programs in incarcerated settings. Join them in a conversation about the ability of song to enrich and even change us.
