It is indeed amazing, watching a music and dance competition, and the competitors are students of medicine. The premiere medical schools of the country, that is the Philippines, of course, came up with an annual event that will showcase the talents of medical students, perhaps conceived initially as a respite from the totally rigid academics, and eventually, turned into something more artistic and competitive. Watch the winning chorale, St. Luke's College of Medicine, deliver a music from The Phantom of the Opera - All I Ask of You, held just last Sunday, 10 Feb 13 at the Aliw Theater. I think music and medicine go together, that is why doctors can heal, they have music in their hearts.

I tend to believe that the reason that medicine and music go together so well is because of the fact that music is something that is relaxing to us. If you think about it for just a moment, you will realize that music is something that is very commonly used in medicine. When a surgeon goes into the operating room, it is typical that there will be some kind of music that they will have on the radio when they are performing their art of healing.

I agree that music is ONE of the 'healing' products of the human mind, which is the TRUE healer. The human mind distracts its conscious parts with the complex architectures of music or -whatever complex orchestrations it is attracted-to in art, and the subconscious mind quietly takes care of the even-more-beautiful, even-more-complex systems of the human body! Maybe Adam & Eve (of the first book of the Christian Bible) are metaphors for the subconscious- & conscious minds! The subconscious mind is happy with whatever you give it (& just plain doesn't want what is forbidden), while the conscious mind wants more-&-more, ESPECIALLY what is forbidden!

Dear friend, Thank you for sharing such a nice one. Here at ancient times there was a musicial named Tarzen, who sang and brought rain and also controlled the nature. Not only those snakes are even now dances to the tune of flutes some even come out form their hidden places. There is no doubt music has great powers. But there power of music for healing was gone with those ancient people mostly. I feel this should have been gone better if others would too have given those lesson of it.

It has been sometime since attend a performance. I totally agree with person who says that to tame the beast within music can sooth the savage soul. Even during Bible times, music plays an important role in helping those who need healing. It is no wonder that whenever there is a pregnant woman somebody who advise her to listen to soothing music since the baby and her will relax more. In addition to this the child when born is musically inclined. I tried this experiment with my daughter. Music can uplift you soul to heights that you will be surprise. It is the reason that music is use on movies to create an impact to the viewers. Thanks Ms Eileen for reminding me to spend sometime to listen.
