Renee Fleming Named Artist Spokesperson For AMTA & Music Therapy


New York, NY (Top40 Charts / American Music Therapy Association) The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) is honored to welcome renowned soprano, Renée Fleming, as our newest artist spokesperson. Ms. Fleming's accomplishments reflect her artistry as well as her passion for making a difference in the lives of people through her work. Among her many accomplishments, Ms. Fleming is a four-time Grammy Award winner. In 2013, President Obama awarded her the National Medal of Arts, America's highest honor for an individual artist. And in 2016 she instigated a partnership between NIH and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts focusing on the intersections of music and the mind.

As one of the most highly acclaimed singers of our time, Ms. Fleming not only captivates audiences, but is also passionate about the importance and potential of music for health and well-being, especially in the form of music therapy. AMTA welcomes Ms. Fleming's commitment to exploring the science and benefits of music therapy interventions for wellness and rehabilitation.

Ms. Fleming notes, "The transformative power of music, including its therapeutic uses for individuals with autism, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, chronic pain, and PTSD, inspires me tremendously. I'm excited by the opportunity to amplify the incredible work done by AMTA and music therapists around the country."

AMTA partners with artists to build public awareness and support improved access to music therapy services for those in need and their families. As Artist Spokesperson, Ms. Fleming will serve as an advocate for music therapy, promoting the many applications and benefits of music therapy. AMTA looks forward to partnering with Ms. Fleming to advance awareness of music therapy, research, and education.
