Marna Seltzer, Director Princeton University Concerts

In this talk, Marna makes a case for attending live concerts and helps explain why we gather. The mini communities that are formed for the two hours we sit together in the dark, connect us to each other through music. Artistic appreciation and aesthetic engagement is a basic human characteristic we all share regardless of our age or background and makes us feel like we belong.
