Improve Your Mental Health with Some Music – Houston Public Media

The Apollo Chamber Players are set to present their final concert of the “Silenced Voices” season, titled Muted, on May 24, 2024. This concert will focus on mental health and prominently feature Robert Schumann’s Piano Quintet.

As a renowned composer, Schumann is also known for his struggles with mental health. Music has the ability to have a profound impact on mental health, whether it’s classical music, classic rock, country, hip hop or any other genre. It can be therapeutic and healing for many individuals.

In a recent discussion with Matthew Detrick, the artistic director and violinist of The Apollo Chamber Players, and Molly Cueto, clinic director at Ellie Mental Health, they highlighted the connection between music and mental health. The ensemble has partnered with local mental health organizations including EMH to present a discussion about music and mental health alongside the concert. Cueto will be featured in this discussion.

The concert Muted aims to shed light on the importance of mental health and the role that music can play in promoting well-being. It promises to be a meaningful and thought-provoking event for both music lovers and mental health advocates.
