Healing with Music: Clemency Burton-Hill
“If there are words and music and light and humans communicating, then I know it’s going to be OK. It has to be, doesn’t it?” poses Clemency Burton-Hill. Those words, though universal, take on an ever deeper meaning timed after the beloved award-winning broadcaster, writer, musician, and podcast host embarked on a miraculous and arduous recovery from a massive brain aneurysm in January 2020. As the host of Princeton University Concerts’ new Healing with Music series, she will interview fellow musicians for whom music has played a pivotal role in their own encounters with illness and other personal upheaval. But first, she will be the guest-of-honor in this special launch to the series that will introduce you to her remarkably stirring story, featuring a conversation—led by her friend, celebrated writer Maria Popova—with the neurosurgeon who saved her life, and featuring live music that played a crucial role within her ever-continuing journey of recovery.
