The Remarkable Interplay Between Music And Medicine

Doctor- Musicians heal themselves while healing -- by playing classical music!

This video is about the book Scales To Scalpels, which spotlights incredible story of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra and is written by its president, and one of the musical doctors, Lisa Wong MD.

"You can arrive at a rehearsal all wound up in a knot and all of a sudden, two to five hours later you're whistling" says a clarinetist/surgeon.

"I want to be able to make a difference in other people's lives" says a young neurologist. "Music is a way, in addition to medicine, to serve other people. You couldn't ask for more."
