Music as life support: Dr. Robert Bartlett and Josh Jung

When the LSO takes the stage of Hill Auditorium on May 2, Dr. Robert Bartlett will be in the double bass section, as he has been for nearly every concert since January 2001.

He’s a legend at U-M, and far beyond, as the surgeon and inventor who has led the development of life support technologies that have saved countless patients.

But he has also kept his love of music alive throughout his research and clinical career — and has encouraged others who work on his research team to do the same.

For this concert, one of those lab team members will take center stage, as the LSO’s featured soloist on Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1.

Josh Jung, a research technician in Bartlett’s Extracorporeal Life Support Research Laboratory, was named the co-winner of the LSO’s Concerto Competition last fall.

Come hear Josh, Dr. Bartlett and the rest of the LSO. Details here.
