The Weill Cornell Music & Medicine Initiative is pleased to invite you to a special series of events!

On Sunday evening, October 7th, the newly formed Music and Medicine Orchestra and Chorus will perform Mozart’s Requiem at St. Bartholomew’s Church.

The Music and Medicine Orchestra and Chorus is comprised of musicians who are medical students, residents, faculty, and staff from Weill Cornell Medical College, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Rockefeller University, and Hospital for Special Surgery as well as musicians from The Juilliard School and friends of the Music and Medicine Initiative.

In addition to the Mozart concert, we will also host a mini-symposium on Thursday, October 4th which explores the connections between Mozart and medicine.

We are proud to announce that proceeds from our Mozart events will benefit healthcare for the underserved at the Weill Cornell Community Clinic. Please find more information about each of our Mozart events below. We look forward to exploring Mozart and medicine with you!
