The True Power of Music
As the Coronavirus pandemic swept the world, Patrick Dexter uplifted the hearts of millions with his online cello performance from his home in the West of Ireland. Through this experience, he came face to face with music's true power to connect people and help them through times of widespread hardship. In this talk, Patrick shares the psychology and history behind music's role as a healing tool for both individuals and society. As we move from social distancing to a time of social reconnection, Patrick invites us to allow music's true power to do what it has done for human societies for millennia, to heal and to bring us together.
