“I have seen the amazing power of music, witnessing Alzheimer’s patients responding and enhancing their communication after years of living inside themselves. How is it that somebody who doesn’t recognize friends or family members can sit down at a piano and play beautifully, or remember the words to songs and sing along? There is an emotional power, an underpinning of who we are as human beings, that exists in music. I congratulate the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and philanthropist Susan Gutfreund on their 2019 Gala celebrating ‘The Healing Power of Music,’ and on their continued advocacy for Alzheimer’s research and music.”
– Renée Fleming, soprano
