Since we’re all about blending medicine, science and music, we thought it would be fun to take photos of some of our members with their instruments in the places where they work or train.
We’re fortunate to have skilled amateur photographer (and retired physician) Dr. Bern Muller in our viola section. Together with our members, he came up with fun ways to show how LSO musicians make a difference in their work or studies — and find release through music.
