Leslie Hyland Rodgers will talk about the personal journey that inspired her to launch and nurture the mission of Symphony of Soul over the last 16 years. With a roster of more than 100 professional musicians, the Austin-based nonprofit performs roughly 400 times a year. They provide “musical medicine for the soul” to people who are confined in hospitals, shelters, rehab centers, and retirement homes.
