Take a free trip to Vienna — virtually — with the Life Sciences Orchestra on Dec. 8

The crisp early-winter air. The streets bustling with students and pre-holiday shoppers. The sounds of Strauss in a renowned concert hall.

Ann Arbor will feel a little like Vienna on Saturday, Dec. 8 as the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra takes the stage of Hill Auditorium for a free concert of works written and arranged by Vienna-based composers.

Beginning at 8 p.m., the LSO and music director Chelsea Gallo will transport their audience to the Austrian capital through works by both Richard and Johann Strauss, and a piece by Johannes Brahms arranged by Arnold Schoenberg.

The LSO brings together medical, health and science faculty, staff, students and alumni from across the university.

The concert is free and open to the public, as is a pre-concert lecture at 7:15 p.m. by Gallo in the lower level of the building.

No tickets are required, though the LSO accepts donations to support its concerts.
