LSO kicks off 20th season with free concert on Jan. 12

January 6, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

On Sunday, Jan. 12, the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra will kick off its 20th season of blending music, medicine and science. 

The performance — to be held in Hill Auditorium — will begin with the overture to Fidelio, the only opera written by Ludwig van Beethoven, followed by the fairy tale-inspired Mother Goose Suite by Maurice Ravel. It will conclude with Finnish composer Jean Sibelius’s First Symphony.

The concert is free and open to the public, as is the pre-concert lecture by Tal Benatar, the Gilbert S. Omenn, M.D., Music Director, in the lower level of the building. No tickets are required, though the LSO accepts donations to support its concerts.

The pre-concert talk will be held at 3:15 p.m., with the concert scheduled for 4 p.m.

The orchestra is part of the Gifts of Art Program, which brings the world of art and music to Michigan Medicine. 

The LSO, which is made up of medical, health and science faculty, staff, students and alumni from across U-M, gives members an outlet for their musical talents and a chance to interact with one another across related academic disciplines and professions.
