President’s Concert Series – Sounds and Science

As part of the President’s Concert Series, Santa J. Ono, President and Vice-Chancellor, UBC, presents:

Sounds and Science:
Vienna meets Vancouver

Music and Science are presented together, thereby leading to novel insights and concepts.

Join us for a concert featuring internationally celebrated musicians, among them members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra paired with scientific insights from researchers, Faculty of Medicine, UBC.

The idea of combining music and medicine into the “Sounds & Science” – scientific concert series started in 2008, when the Austrian violinist Rainer Honeck played Bach’s Chaconne in d-minor directly before a keynote lecture, held by Nobel laureate Peter Doherty, at the Austrian Society of Allergology and Immunology’s yearly meeting in Vienna. The experience at that lecture was remarkable, truly a special moment. Attendees of the “Sounds & Science” series have also described that music opens the mind, and enables a better understanding of concepts in life and thereby science in general.

The November 30th program features music by classical music composers Mozart, Schubert, Strauss, Brahms and Shostakovich. Interspersed with lectures on Infectious Disease, Life Sciences, Healthy Aging and the Future of Cancer Research.
