Annual Events

Linden Oaks hosts public programs throughout the year to raise awareness of mental health issues and provide support to the community.

Music and the Mind

The Music and the Mind event features a lecture-recital by Juilliard-trained concert pianist and Harvard-educated psychiatrist Dr. Richard Kogan. His performance explores the impact of psychological factors and psychiatric illness on the creative output of the great composers. At last year’s event, Kogan profiled American composer George Gershwin (1898-1937). The program included performances of Gershwin masterpieces such as Rhapsody in Blue and Porgy and Bess.
