The Life Sciences Orchestra’s first concert of the season will feature the first symphonies composed by two of classical music’s giants: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Gustav Mahler.

All are invited to attend this free performance, which will also feature music composed by Mozart for the ballet Idomeneo. No tickets are required for the free concert, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20 at famed Hill Auditorium.

Audience members are asked to attend only if feeling well, and are requested to wear masks; if local public health conditions change by the day of the concert, masks may be required.

The LSO, which is made up of faculty, staff, students, alumni and family members from the U-M medical, health, science and engineering community, is led by Yeo Ryeong Ahn, a doctoral student in orchestral conducting at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance. She is assisted by Luca Antonucci, who is also in the doctoral conducting program.

Ahn has recorded remarks for audience members to view online before or after they attend. Watch them at https://youtu.be/q5gKzOSuiRg .

The LSO’s next concert will be the afternoon of Sunday, March 26, also at Hill Auditorium. It will feature Concerto Competition winners Thor Sigurdson, playing Haydn’s Cello Concerto in D major, and Andrew Custer, playing the Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra by Launy Grøndahl.
