Kogan is clinical professor of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College, artistic director of the Weill Cornell Music and Medicine Program and co-director of the Weill Cornell Human Sexuality Program. His piano performances have been reviewed by The New York Times, which praised his “exquisite playing,” and by The Boston Globe, which wrote, “Kogan has somehow managed to excel at the world’s two most demanding professions.”

Both performances are open to the Vanderbilt community on a first-come, first-seated basis.
