October speaker: Music and the brain – Emmanuella Reiter

At the monthly member meeting on October 9, 2013, Emmanuella Reiter will give us a presentation about Music and the brain.

Based on personal experiences, this lecture recital given by Emmanuella will be targeting the fascinating subject of the effect of music on the brain, on verbal memory, on its power to help recall memory especially in Alzeihmer and brain trauma patients.

She will also be performing live to illustrate the effects of music on mood, heartbeat and brain connections.

Praised as an “excellent violist with wonderful technical assurance, conviction, innate musicality and intelligence”, Emmanuella enjoys a varied and international career.
An experienced orchestral player, Emmanuella has performed with all the major London orchestras (London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra) and has been a member of the London Philharmonic Orchestra since 2008.

In 2008 Emmanuella founded the highly successful Jigsaw Players, offering high caliber chamber music and jazz concerts as well as educational projects in Wimbledon, London.

Born into a family of musicians in Jerusalem, Emmanuella began her musical studies at an early age with her father. After lessons in violin and piano at the Conservatoire National de Region de Nice, France, she entered the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, USA. In January 2001, on discovering her passion for the viola, she entered the class of Kim Kashkashian at the New England Conservatory in Boston. There she received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees.

Babysitting will be available at the playroom in the church for all members and any new people (non members) who wish to come along with their children without any pre-registration for €5.
