In this evening of music and discussion, Cristina Pato (musician, educator and member of the Grammy-winning Silk Road Ensemble) and UCSB musicians perform "My Lethe Story: The River of Forgetfulness," a piece composed by Pato and inspired by her mother's struggle with dementia; followed by a panel discussion on how the sciences and the arts can learn from each other as they seek to understand memory and its loss. The panelists will also discuss student research opportunities on these issues in a new summer course that they will co-teach in Summer Session B. Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at 5 p.m. in the Old Little Theater in the College of Creative Studies. Reception to follow at 6:30 p.m. in the CCS Gallery.
