Penn State laureate discusses music's life-enhancing potential

Anthony Leach, the 2009-2010 Penn State laureate and associate professor of music and music education, understands music's potential to influence and enhance the lives of others. From directing two vocal music ensembles, the University Choir and the highly regarded choir Essence of Joy, to teaching undergraduate and graduate music education students, Leach sees firsthand the unifying power of music on both performers and audiences. He describes a bit of his musical philosophy by reflecting on the role music has played in his life since childhood. Produced by C Roy Parker
