With the start of the New Year, the LSO has begun preparing for our concert on Sunday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in Hill Auditorium.
Please note the time change from the previously announced 4 p.m. start time!
The performance will feature guest soloist David J. Brown, M.D., co-winner of our Concerto Competition and Associate Vice President for Health Equity and Inclusion at Michigan Medicine, U-M’s academic medical center. He’ll perform Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto with the LSO. Brown is a founder of the LSO and a pediatric otolaryngologist at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
Music director Chelsea Gallo has selected works to complement the Nielsen to round out the rest of the program. They are:
Helix, by Esa-Pekka Salonen, written in 2005

and the Symphony No. 4 in F minor by Pyotr Ilytch Tchaikovsky
