“Discovery Concerts provide experiential learning opportunities for students that have a lasting positive impact. We are grateful for the support of Community Health Network, which helps the ISO connect young audiences to symphonic music and spark a lifelong love of the arts,” said James M. Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

“Community Health Network continues to be a proud supporter of this learning experience, which enhances the health and well-being of the students who participate,” said Kathy Krusie, Senior Vice President and Chief Administration Officer, Community Physician Network. “Over the past two decades, studies have demonstrated that music education has multiple favorable effects on a host of mental and functional processes, it literally changes the brain structure. Musical training has been shown to have a positive effect beyond the impact on hearing, speech and coordination including improving IQ levels and school grades among many other benefits.”
