George Ubogy, M.D., will talk about appreciating music, which is basically understanding how differing emotions are captured and exemplified in music. He will illustrate his talk by playing excerpts by Schubert, Wagner, Rossini and Brahms. He also will discuss the role of the performer’s interpretation of music, the physics of musical sounds and the neurobiology of hearing music. Dr. Ubogy attended the Juilliard Preparatory Division during childhood and adolescence and continues to play the piano for pleasure. At Cornell University, he learned to play the chimes (a small carillon) and continues to make and submit musical arrangements of classical and popular music for that instrument. A retired physician, he was an internist and section head at Greenwich Hospital.
