‘Sonata for Piano’ is a moving demonstration of one way a music therapy journey can occur. It is an original composition created by stroke survivor Tina Callahan and Ms. Mulholland. The piece consists of eleven short compositions within five movements and is performed as a duet on two pianos by Ms. Callahan and Ms. Mulholland. Tom Callahan, husband of Tina, provides brief narration between the movements.
The Sonata chronicles Ms. Callahan’s experience of stroke from the onset to her current state of recovery. The piece has been presented at several health care venues to enthusiastic audiences, including most recently as the Beverly Bryant Memorial Keynote at this year’s Maine Brain Injury Association Conference.
