Exercise your mind!  Learn all about brain foods for a healthy mind and body in tonight's free lecture on how to eat to promote a healthy brain.  Certain foods are considered 'inflammatory' which means when eaten, they cause inflammation in the body, and contribute to poor brain health as well as illness and chronic pain.  There are also foods designated as 'anti-inflammatory' which can help the brain and body to heal.  Dr. Ayelet Connell-Giammatteo will discuss foods that are good and bad for our brain, and offer tips on how to make the best food choices while enjoying what you eat. 

Ayelet Connell-Giammatteo, PhD, PT, IMT, is president and owner of Integrative Wellness and Physical Therapy in Bloomfield.  She is the author of many articles and a teaches courses in holistic physical therapy.

Featured today,  the recordings of three composers.

Alex Pauk is a Canadian composer, conductor, and educator.  He is credited with revitalizing life for Canadian composers by founding the Esprit Orchestra, a new ensemble in Canada devoted to playing new music, in 1982.  He has won numerous awards.

 

Nikolai Kapustin is a  Russian composer. Educated at Moscow University, he was a jazz pianist, and used that background to compose music bringing together classical structures with jazz idioms. He has been championed by a number of prominent pianists.

 

Gyorgy Ligeti, a Hungarian composer, has been described as "one of the most important avante-garde composers in the latter half of the 20th century." He composed music until very early in the 21st century, when illness forced him to stop writing. He died in 2006.

Russ Salk will bring his collection of recordings by contemporary composers for your listening pleasure. Enjoy musical excerpts and learn a bit about selected contemporary composers. Registration is appreciated.
