Every Brain Needs Music: The Neuroscience of Making and Listening to Music
Whenever a person engages with music, countless neurons are firing―when a piano student practices a scale, a jazz saxophonist riffs on a melody, someone sobs to a sad song, or a wedding guest gets down on the dance floor. Playing an instrument requires all of the resources of the nervous system, including cognitive, sensory, and motor functions. Something as seemingly simple as listening to a tune involves mental faculties most of us don’t even realize we have.
Joining us at this special event:
Neuroscientist and lifelong musician Dr. Larry Sherman
Grammy award-winning, Hopi-Nez Perce Native American flutist James Edmund Greeley
Internationally acclaimed gospel, jazz and blues singer Marilyn Keller
Singer, composer, pianist and recording artist Naomi LaViolette, and
Celebrated cello and bass quartet Porchello
This Science on Tap is a multi-media lecture and concert to show how our brains and music work in harmony.

Soul of Courage with Marilyn Keller
Gun reform, music, and the rhythm of relentlessness

“I sing because I have to,” Marilyn Keller told me midway through our conversation.
“Singing is one of the ways that I feed my spirit. If I could not sing, I would be one very depressed, hopeless person. When I was a child, my family would tease me because I would burst into song at random occasions.”
Marilyn is an incredible vocalist. She’s been singing professionally for 40 years, resulting in her induction into the Jazz Society of Oregon Hall of Fame in 2016.
