UC San Diego Department of Psychiatry 50th Anniversary

Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 3:00pm

Psychiatrist and concert pianist Dr. Richard Kogan will gave a presentation that explored the impact of psychological forces and psychiatric illness on the creative output of the great American composer George Gershwin. The program included performances of Gershwin masterpieces including Rhapsody in Blue and Porgy and Bess.

Richard Kogan has a distinguished career both as a concert pienist and as a psychiatrist. Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College and Artistic Director of the Weill Cornell Music and Medicine Program, he has been praised for his "eloquent, compelling, and exquisite playing" by the New York Times, and the Boston Globe wrote that, "Kogan has somehow managed to excel at the world's two most demanding professions."
