An evening of songs, stories, and science. Celebrating the launch of the book “The Awesome Music Project: Songs of Hope and Happiness”
Performances featuring Jim and Ed from Barenaked Ladies, David Bidini from The Rheostatics, and Good Lovelies.
Stories told by Nobu Adilman from Choir! Choir! Choir!, Shaun Brodie from The Queer Songbook Orchestra, and Lieutenant-Commander Shekhar Gothi of the Canadian Armed Forces, on his experiences in the 2010 Haiti Earthquake.
Proceeds from The Awesome Music Project will fund strategic research initiatives involving music and mental health. The initial research project is a collaboration between the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and the Music and Health Research Collaboratory (MaHRC) of the University of Toronto.
In this project, researchers will study the effects of neurologic music therapy on brain systems using positron emission tomography (PET)-based brain imaging techniques.
