Mar 15, 2012 | Composer’s Documentary Shines Spotlight on Music Therapy

A Grammy Award-winning modern composer who credits the healing powers of music therapy for helping him overcome a debilitating stroke and return to the stage is bringing his story to the big screen. Joel Thome’s music documentary, “Inside the Perfect Circle: The Odyssey of Joel Thome,” is taking his message to the film festival circuit – next stop: March 16 at the 15th Annual Green Mountain Film Festival in Montpelier, Vermont. Thome lost the use of his left arm after suffering a stroke in 1998 and underwent years of recovery.

A board member of IMNF since 2000, Thome is a music professor at SUNY Purchase and has been recognized by ASCAP (2004) for composition and the Music Has Power Award® in 2002.
