The Observer and Eccentric recently published an article about the University of Michigan Life Sciences Orchestra, which gathers together local science and medical professionals, as well as U-M science alumni and medical students, who play musical instruments. ( previously published a slideshow of the orchestra preparing for a 2011 concert.)

The group has a concert scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m. at Hill Auditorium, and flutist and U-M music professor Amy Porter will play Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major.

Shostakovich and "a symphony by Mahler that combines everything from bird calls to German drinking songs" are also on the program.

Admission to the concert is free.

Sounds wonderful! Cannot attend due to having a little one. I wish it was possible for Ann Arbor community television or UofM (online) to broadcast future performances.
