Do You Hear What I Hear? Deciphering a Universal Language
David Fuentes, Professor of Music
Faculty Lectureship Award Series

David Fuentes, Professor of Music, Calvin CollegeWhy is it that we understand music intuitively, yet we’re lost for words when trying to describe its effect on us? While the language of music is a mystery to many, composers and advertisers know how to use it to affect concert goers, consumers, and congregants in predictable ways. Want a glimpse into their bag of secrets?

Professor David Fuentes will explain how paying attention to a few simple connections can open the way to a better understanding of how music "speaks" about matters that matter to us all, such as the nature of courage, the certainty of joy, and what it feels like to be in love.
