Orchestrating Change : Screening and Discussion

May 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

ORCHESTRATING CHANGE is the documentary film that tells the inspiring story of Me2/Orchestra, the only orchestra in the world created by and for people living with mental illness and those who support them. Co-founded by Ronald Braunstein, once a world-renowned conductor whose career was shattered when his own diagnosis of bipolar disorder was made public, the mission of the orchestra is to erase stigma one exhilarating concert at a time. As they rehearse, perform and prepare for a major concert, these extraordinary musicians have no idea how much the orchestra will change their lives in poignant and powerful ways.

Join us for a discussion with Me2/ Music Director, Ronald Braunstein, Executive Director, Caroline Whiddon, a Me2/ musician featured in the film and the two filmmakers.
