In this latest episode of ‘Bach, the Universe and Everything’, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s Sunday morning series combining performances of Bach cantatas with talks from leading scientists, Neuroscientist Professor Sophie Scott discusses the science of laughter and why we instinctively try to make each other laugh to get through difficult times. 

This is the first of three back-to-back in-person performances of Bach, the Universe and Everything concerts recorded at Kings Place. The recordings are being released to the public over the coming months.
