This article in the Chicago Tribune is not easy to read, but it underscores the healing power of music for former University of Rochester student Nicholas Kollias.   In December of 2015 he and another student was abducted, held, and tortured for several hours before being rescued by a Rochester police SWAT team.

You can hear Kollias play a waltz by Chopin on iTunes.
