Posted on: February 22, 2013

The Knoxville (Tenn.) Symphony Orchestra has announced the appointment of ALANA DELLATAN SEATON as music therapist, a newly created part-time position supported by an Education and Community Investment Grant from the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation. The grant was awarded to the orchestra for its Music and Wellness program, one of 22 innovative education and community partnership programs from across the United States selected by the League of American Orchestras last fall to receive first-year Getty Education and Community Investment Grants. Seaton, who began her duties February 14, will work with KSO musicians and create music therapy plans for patients in area hospitals through the orchestra’s Music and Wellness program. She has a decade of clinical experience in facilitating individual and group music therapy sessions and treatment plans, including private practices in both New Orleans and Knoxville. Seaton is the first music therapist in East Tennessee to work within a hospital program in integrative medicine.
