Dame Evelyn Glennie is the first solo
percussionist in history to sustain a full-time career despite
being profoundly deaf since the age of 12. As a composer for film,
theatre and television, she is a double GRAMMY award-winner and
BAFTA nominee who has performed with the greatest orchestras,
conductors, and artists in the world.
Evelyn was awarded an OBE in 1993 and was awarded the Polar Music Prize, the Companion of Honour, and was recently named as the new chancellor of Robert Gordon University.
Evelyn’s book “Listen Well” helps people enhance their relationship with listening to create lives that are more vivid and meaningful. Today, Evelyn joins the show to discuss how you can listen better to enhance communication and social cohesion.
