Abstract

A piano concert series and jazz reception program was organized at the College of Dentistry at New York University, in 2007. An anonymous survey to assess the response of faculty, staff, and students to the concert series was conducted during 2010 to 2011. Overwhelmingly, the respondents recommend that music concerts in the dental college be continued. Support is apparent in the overall recommendation and in questions dealing with stress, productivity, music, the auditorium, and the community. Differences between groups defined by status (student, faculty, other, or unknown) and by previous music study (yes, no, or unknown) were small. Events such as a concert series organized at the College of Dentistry apparently can have positive influence on work–life balance.
