David J. Brown, M.D., to be featured in upcoming Life Sciences Orchestra concert
When the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra takes the stage of Hill Auditorium on Sunday, April 14, the flute soloist playing with them will be someone familiar to many people across Michigan Medicine: David J. Brown, M.D., associate vice president and associate dean for health equity and inclusion, and a pediatric otolaryngologist at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
Brown, who helped launch the orchestra 19 years ago, won the LSO’s most recent concerto competition, and will perform Carl Nielsen’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra.
Under the baton of Chelsea Gallo, who is the Gilbert S. Omenn, M.D., Music Director of the LSO, the orchestra will also perform works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Salonen.
The concert is free and open to all, with no tickets required. It will begin at 7 p.m. and Gallo will give a pre-concert talk at 6:15 to share insights into the pieces on the program.
The LSO is part of Michigan Medicine’s Gifts of Art program, and includes dozens of faculty, staff, students and alumni from across the health and science areas of U-M.
