The LSO returns to the stage after two years with a free concert that includes three works with a French connection, and a piano concerto by the first Black American female composer to have her work performed by major symphony orchestras.

The program includes:
Mozart's Symphony No. 31, known as the Paris Symphony
Florence Price's Piano Concerto in One Movement, featuring Xiaoya Liu
Debussy's La Mer (first movement)
Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique (first movement)

The LSO's music director is Yeo Ryeong Ahn, assisted by Leonard Bopp. Both are students in orchestral conducting at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance; Ahn recently competed in the international La Maestra competition for female conductors in Paris.

The orchestra is made up of faculty, staff, students, alumni and volunteers from the U-M medical, health and science community, and is a program of Gifts of Art at Michigan Medicine.

The concert is free and no tickets are required. Audience members must complete the Responsiblue guest screening at https://bit.ly/LSOguest and wear a mask at all times, and no children under 3 will be admitted. Any other COVID protocols required for the concert will be posted by the week of the concert on the LSO website and Facebook page
