Memphis Symphony Orchestra says
The Memphis Symphony Orchestra and University of Tennessee Health Science Center neurology department will host a symposium to shed light on our community’s stroke crisis and the way music served as an outlet for one stroke survivor.

Brett Dietz, guest composer to the Memphis Symphony, will begin the conversation discussing his first-hand experience as a stroke survivor and how music helped him through his recovery. His musical composition, “Headcase,” artfully presents the story of his recovery from a stroke in his left frontal lobe. The Symphony will be performing this piece as a portion of its first Classic Accents concert this Sunday.

UTHSC will then offer a neurology panel featuring Dietz, MSO Principal Conductor Robert Moody and Dr. Katherine Nearing, a resident doctor who specializes in stroke treatment. The panel will discuss the importance of the intensive stroke care offered in Memphis and the impact art can have on patient recovery. Nearing will also share information about the neurology department’s mobile stroke treatment unit, one of only four in the nation.
