Linden Oaks announces Music and the Mind Gala Event

January 09, 2017

Linden Oaks Behavioral Health will host a gala event, Music and the Mind, on April 21, 2017 at the Hilton Lisle/Naperville (303 Corporate West Drive, Lisle).  The event, starting at 5:00 pm, features an impactful musical performance by Juilliard trained concert pianist and Harvard educated psychiatrist, Richard Kogan, MD.  

Dr. Kogan guides a dynamic presentation that explores the impact of psychological factors and psychiatric illness on the creative output of the great composer and pianist, Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827).

The presentation uses Beethoven’s personal story to communicate the complexity of mental health and raise questions about treatment and use of music to support healing.

Dr. Kogan has been praised for his “eloquent, compelling, and exquisite playing” by The New York Times, and The Boston Globe wrote that “Kogan has somehow managed to excel at the world’s two most demanding professions.”

Tickets, which are $125 each (before February 14), include the performance as well as cocktails, appetizers, and an opportunity to mingle with guests and the performer after the show

All of the proceeds from Music and the Mind will fund programs, services and capital needs for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses and substance abuse, through Linden Oaks, a provider of complex services for severe mood, personality, eating, anxiety and addictive disorders.

Music and the Mind is an event designed to bring necessary attention and resources to mental health awareness and treatment.
