After a two-year hiatus from performing on the stage of U-M's legendary Hill Auditorium, the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra will once again fill the hall with music on Sunday, Jan. 9 beginning at 4 p.m., with a free concert that will follow COVID safety protocols for performers and audience members alike.

No tickets are needed but good-fitting masks and proof of vaccination or a recent negative PCR test will be required and no children under 3 will be admitted. Full details of our COVID-19 safety protocols are below.

The concert, conducted by music director Yeo Ryeong Ahn assisted by Leonard Bopp, will feature three melodic and uplifting works that will appeal to all:
Aaron Copland - Outdoor Overture
Florence Price - Piano Concerto in One Movement with special guest soloist Xiaoya Liu
Antonin Dvorak - Symphony No. 9 in E minor, "From the New World", Op. 95, B. 178

Any updates to the concert schedule due to weather or U-M/local pandemic protocols will be posted on this website and on the LSO Facebook page.

COVID-19 Protocols:
For the safety of our audience and performers, we will follow strict safety protocols. We will update these as necessary depending on U-M and local/state public health guidance and any updates will be posted on this Facebook event and our website.
1. All attendees and performers must complete the Responsiblue screening and show their results on a smartphone or printout on arrival. Those who are part of the U-M community should use the logged-in version, which also displays vaccination status; those who are not part of the U-M community should use this link: This MUST be completed for each member of the party including children.

2. All attendees and performers must wear a good-fitting mask over their nose and mouth at all times except when drinking water. (Brass and woodwind players are permitted to remove it when actively playing, as all performers have been vaccinated.)

3. No children under age 3 will be allowed.

4. All children and adults must show proof of vaccination (card, photo of card, approved app such as MyChart or Clear, or logged-in Responsiblue screen) OR show the results of a PCR test taken no longer that 72 hours before the concert time.

5. No refreshments will be sold or allowed, though water may be brought in.

6. Families with 3- and 4-year-old children (too young to be vaccinated), and any party that includes children/adults who are not yet fully vaccinated, are asked to sit apart from others, preferably in the mezzanine (lower balcony).

7. We encourage everyone eligible for a booster vaccination (which is anyone over age 16) to seek a booster dose before attending.
