This episode begins with a guided meditation and breathing exercise from Dr. Frank Clark. It is followed by a performance of the "Nimrod" movement in Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations composed in 1898-1899. The SC Philharmonic performed this piece on September 12, 2019, in memory of our violinist Timmothy Baker.

Utilizing SC Philharmonic archival recordings as well as new solo recordings by some of our musicians, InTune is a series of guided mindfulness practices with music that provides a gentle mental break to calm the spirit and refresh the mind. In these stressful, turbulent, and uncertain times, we aim to bring hope and joy to our community.

This series is in collaboration with Dr. Frank Clark. Dr. Clark is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine—Greenville and Medical Director and Division Chief for Adult Inpatient & Consultation-Liaison Services for the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine with Prisma Health—Upstate.
