Fitness expert to discuss physical demands on musicians

Music is a demanding discipline, says Frank Jeney, and practitioners must keep healthy to perform at their peak.

Fitness coordinator at the St. Denis athletic centre, Jeney will discuss how to prevent injuries in his presentation, “The importance of stretching and strengthening for musicians,” in the Music Building’s Recital Hall on Wednesday, February 1, at 4 p.m.

“People typically don’t realize how much their body is being used, not just as a result of the physical strain, but the mental part as well,” he says.
