"The Art and Science of Medical Music" Performance and Discussion
Southern Vermont College (SVC) will host a presentation of music and discussion entitled “The Art and Science of Medical Music” by author/musician Andrew Schulman, Dr. Marvin McMillen, MD, and guest Eric Despard, as well as a showing of the documentary, “Andrew & Wendy,” on Wednesday, March 29, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Oldcastle Theatre. The film and talk are free and open to the public. The 30-minute biographical film, produced by Academy Award nominee Josh Aronson (2014), tells the story of a New York Upper West Side couple at a crisis point. Andrew, who is in a coma, is not responding to anything. Knowing his deep connection to music, his wife, Wendy, decides to play Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion” on his ipod for him, which in turn brings him back, a miraculous outcome even acknowledged by his doctors. For more information, contact Professor Despard at or 802-681-2889.
