In Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of the Anthony Burgess novel A Clockwork Orange, Malcolm Macdowell is memorably conditioned to veer from his life of ultra-violence with generous doses of Ludwig Van. But does music really sooth the savage breast? Does blasting Barry Manilow at high volume drive away delinquent teenagers? The answer may surprise you. Check out Music, Criminal Behavior and Crime Prevention, part of the Music and the Brain lecture series, on the Library’s YouTube channel. You can subscribe to Music and the Brain podcasts on iTunes. And if you’re in Washington, come hear the latest in the series Music and the Brain II on Friday, March 12th, with “The Positive Effects of Music Therapy on Health.” Concetta M. Tomaino, Executive Director, Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, will be our guest speaker. The lecture begins at 6:15 in the Whittall Pavilion, adjacent to the Coolidhge Auditorium in the Jefferson Building.
