On Sunday, April 28, 2013, The Friends of the Semel Institute will host a gala entitled "Music and the Mind." The evening will celebrate and explore the rich relationship among music, the mind and mental illness. Robert Gupta, Los Angeles Philharmonic violinist, founder of the Street Symphony and senior TED fellow, will perform and speak about his TED talk, "Music Is Medicine, Music Is Sanity." The event honors philanthropists Renee and Meyer Luskin, UCLA's Dr. Andrew Leuchter and Emmy-Award-winning actor Eric McCormack, who stars in the new television series Perception.
