Music for Health and Healing 
A Presentation in Lecture and Music
by Jennifer Goodenberger
and CD release of "Breathe Peace"
original solo piano music by Jennifer, composed to create deep relaxation

A Concert/Lecture on “Music for Health and Healing” by pianist and composer, Jennifer Goodenberger will be presented on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 7:00 pm at the Performing Arts Center, in Astoria, OR.  Goodenberger will also be releasing a new CD of original piano solos, entitled, “Breathe Peace” which she specifically composed to create deep relaxation.   During the evening, Goodenberger will alternate between discussing music as a healing power, and performing music which illustrates the concepts. Music performed will be from the new CD, in addition to her other recordings. Topics to be explored will include: an overview of music and sound therapy; how sound affects our physical and emotional health; how to consciously use music to heal; and current applications and research into the healing abilities of music.
Goodenberger is known for the elegance of her playing, and her sensitive and expressive performances.  For over 30 years she has studied the effects of music on the body, mind and spirit, transmitting that knowledge into her compositions and musicianship.  Her CD's of solo piano music are often used in healing, massage, yoga, birthing, hospice, and as ambient music for creativity and relaxation.  It has also been used for film soundtracks.  In addition to “Breathe Peace,” Goodenberger has two other recordings of original piano solos, “Mystical” and “Return” in addition to “Simple Gifts: American Folk Songs,” and “Christmas Reflections.”

The Performing Arts Center is located at 16th and Franklin Streets in Astoria.  Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors.
