U-M Life Sciences Orchestra

The U-M Life Sciences Orchestra (LSO), a Gifts of Art program, was founded in the fall of 2000 by a small group of musicians and artists at the U-M Medical School and Health System. It provides performance opportunities for the many faculty, staff, students, and volunteers in life science disciplines at the university who have previous musical training but few opportunities to play. For its spring concert in the celebrated Hill Auditorium, the LSO will perform works by Italian composers, featuring Respighi’s “Pines of Rome”. There will be a pre-concert lecture at 6:45 pm by Music Director Roberto Kalb.
