The third meeting of the”Recovery: how classical music helps to overcome stress” music lecture series explores the connection between music and meditation.

It is no secret that meditation helps to restore inner balance in peace. It is also learned that music is used in these practices. We will find out what kind of music is appropriate, and whether classical music will help you meditate on May 11 at 18:30 in the small hall of the Lviv Philharmonic.
The meeting is traditionally hosted by pianist, musicologist, and emotional music Intelligence researcher Martha Kuziy. This time the guest will be Ihor Kolesnyk, PhD, associate professor, a doctoral student at Lviv National University, who explores the dialogue between Buddhism and science, research on meditation practices and their application in education. He is the founder of the informal educational project Secular Meditation Laboratory.

We remind you that this spring, the Lviv National Philharmonic launched a social project of lectures entitled “Recovery: How Classical Music Helps to Overcome Stress.” Lviv pianist and musicologist Marta Kuziy invites you to a series of lectures on the emotional aspect of music, the nature of creativity, and the path from the intuitive perception of music to the conscious experience of non-verbalized emotions. The project’s guests, artists of the Lviv Philharmonic, will share their creative impressions, and important professional advice will be given by the lecture’s co-hosts, psychologists and teachers of the Ukrainian Catholic University, in cooperation with which this lecture is held. An important practical component of the effectiveness of such meetings is attending concerts after the lecture – the repertoire of concerts and the lecture topics will be coordinated with each other as much as possible. The lectures are prepared for 30–40 participants.

Our project is designed to help people who are forced to temporarily change their place of residence, but also to all those who are adjusting to the new realities of life.


Attending is free due to registration.

We are waiting for you on May 11 at 18:30
