Warm music for a cold day: Life Sciences Orchestra plays free concert on Jan. 21
No matter how cold it gets outside, Hill Auditorium will fill with warm — and sometimes fiery — music when the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra takes the stage Sunday, Jan. 21 at 4 p.m.
Special guest pianist Professor Emeritus Louis Nagel is the soloist for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto. Nagel is renowned as both a performer and teacher, recently retiring from U-M after 47 years.
The concert is free and open to the public, as is a preconcert lecture by Music Director Chelsea Gallo and Louis Nagel in the lower level of the building. The lecture begins at 3:15 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 academic disciplines and professions.
