Orchestra Kentucky recommends music therapy for emotional and mental well-being

BOWLING GREEN Ky.-The repercussions of the current Coronavirus pandemic can easily have negative effects on a person’s mental well-being and emotions. For those reasons, Orchestra Kentucky is offering a solution.

The solution is music, which Orchestra Kentucky music director Jeff Reed said can lead to many unforeseen benefits.

If you play an instrument, grab it and play to your heart’s content. If you don’t happen to play an instrument, even just listening to music and watching other musicians can have positive effects.

According to Reed, doing these things can help take a person’s mind off of the uncontrollable situation.

Reed said he can’t wait to get Orchestra Kentucky back on stage for the community.

While Orchestra Kentucky’s upcoming schedule is still tentative, Reed said he’s hoping to start off with outdoor concerts once it’s safe to do so.
