Cal Performances at Home: Spring Season. Original, full-length performances streamed direct to your home screen.

“From offering relief to people suffering from dementia and strokes to Parkinson’s disease and even in lowering the rising suicide rate in adolescents, music is proving to provide mental relief that has always been known in our hearts, but now science is backing it up.”
—Rutgers University

Program and guests to be announced

As part of Cal Performances’ 2020/21 Illuminations—“Music and the Mind” programming, legendary soprano Renée Fleming presents a combination discussion-performance with guest musicians and UC Berkeley Professor of Neurosciene Ehud Isacoff as part of her ongoing creative collaborations with researchers, scholars, and scientists. Fleming has made the relationship between music and the human brain the subject of recent work, and this year launched a live-streamed series of conversations with leaders and practitioners working at the intersection of music, neuroscience, and healthcare. In this special recital/presentation, she offers insights into music’s untapped potential for healing and transformation, performing illuminating selections from her expansive repertoire, with piano accompaniment.
