The arts matter!

The arts matter!

"But a flurry of recent studies shows a range of benefits from cultural experiences—some as minimal as going to see one play or spending half a day at an art museum. Researchers led by University of Arkansas professor Jay P. Greene have found that those experiences increase students’ tolerance, empathy, and ability to understand life in another time and place, as measured by survey questions. The effects are strongest for disadvantaged students, perhaps because it’s their first exposure to a museum or live theater.
A larger-scale experiment in Houston found “remarkable impacts” from school partnerships with arts organizations that provided multiple experiences involving theater, dance, music, and the visual arts. Students who got those experiences had fewer disciplinary infractions and better writing scores, compared to a control group. Elementary students were more likely to be engaged in school and aspire to attend college. Also—like the students who visited the art museum and saw the play—all students showed increased “compassion for others.” #MusicEducation #MusicintheSchoolsMonth

Well said, Mr Perlman.

As my fans know, I have spent a lifetime advocating against discrimination towards those with physical disabilities and have been a vocal advocate for treating all people equally. As such, after great consideration, I have decided to cancel my May 18th concert in North Carolina with the North Carolina Symphony as a stand against House Bill 2. As Attorney General Loretta Lynch recently stated, HB2 “is about a great deal more than just bathrooms. [It] is about the dignity and respect we accord our fellow citizens.” I couldn’t agree more and will look forward to returning to North Carolina when this discriminatory law is repealed.
