Music As Therapy – “Happy Serenade”

There is scientific evidence that music can help to ease the symptoms of depression – https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/01/080122203158.html. With this in mind, we invite you to take time out from your busy schedule, relax momentarily and listen to our “Inspiring Music Selection for Today”, personally selected for you by our President, Karl.

Today’s selection is Mozart’s 1787 iconic piece Eine kleine Nachtmusik (German: “A Little Night Music”), performed here in orchestral arrangement. According to Karl: “It was originally intended as an evening song of courtship but was broadly used in the 18th century for light entertainment on social occasions.”

“Today it remains as one of the most recognizable pieces ever written. One often hears it in film, on television, in commercials, as background music in fine dining restaurants, at Summer concerts in Europe, and as a melody that streams in the background while friends converse over a glass of wine.”
