Ryerson professor Dr. Frank Russo, a neuroscientist who studies music and the brain, will be joined by mezzo-soprano Beste Kalender for this special one-hour lecture-recital on how our brains experience emotion in music.  Some of you will remember Frank from his brief presentations in some of our Music Appreciation classes.
