Gigi Luk, Associate Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

Project LENS is a Boston-based performance collaborative that seeks to reveal connections between music and other topics. The group’s diverse studies and passion for classical music have inspired them to start a conversation about the way music relates to topics as eclectic as evolution, law, and birdsong. For this event, Project LENS will join HGSE professor Gigi Luk to explore how the cognitive effects of bilingualism might relate to the benefits of learning music “as another language,” studying multiple instruments, or developing multiple musical styles.

Presented in collaboration with the Cambridge Science Festival
