The Jewish Brain on Music: What I Learned When I Picked up My Cello in Middle Age

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many of us put aside some of our dreams to accommodate family obligations and careers. But it's never too late to recapture the dreams of your youth. That's the message of Ari Goldman's new book, The Late Starters Orchestra. Goldman had a long-standing flirtation with the cello for most of his adult life, but he didn't embrace it fully until he was about to turn sixty. In this session he will talk about how the music of the synagogue helped him achieve his goal. He will also play cello.
