Composer uses music to help children heal from trauma of war

Nigel Osborne is considered one of Britain’s most important contemporary composers. His works have been performed by orchestras around the globe, from the Berlin Symphony to the Los Angeles Philharmonic. But Osborne has also spent the last several decades using music to help children heal from the trauma of conflict. He began in Sarajevo and most recently has worked with Syrian refugees. Osborne joins us to discuss how music can prevent conflict and help bring about healing. (photo: screen shot of video of children who are survivors of the Balkan conflicts playing.)
