Life Sciences Orchestra Spring Concert

I’ve posted about the orchestra before – that it’s a nice mix of students, staff, and faculty, that it’s a wonderful break from the daily work of being a medical/graduate student, that it’s a daring group that enjoys challenging music, and that it’s a great opportunity to see attending physicians and full professors in a context where you can easily call them by their first names.  For me, it’s also been a place to connect with old friends and meet new ones.  My stand partners have become friends and mentors, and there has been a surprising overlap between cellists in my section and knitters I like to chat with about my other nerdy hobby.  In the past few years (and let this be a lesson to all of you – staying at one university for longer than the duration of two degrees is a dangerous choice), I’ve also reconnected with friends from undergrad who either also stayed here for graduate school, or who left, got jobs across the country, and then came back, wooed by our amazing graduate programs and stellar Life Sciences Orchestra. 

All this is to say that we are having a concert on Sunday, and it should be great.  Here are the details:

University of Michigan Life Sciences Orchestra
Hill Auditorium
Admission free

Voyage, for strings - Corigliano
Piano Concerto No. 5 "Emperor" Mov. 1 - Beethoven
Symphony No. 5 - Tchaikovsky
