Prodigy joins concert to benefit new Mott Hospital
Violin prodigy Jourdan Urbach, 15, who has raised more than $1.3 million for children’s charities, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 20 with the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra at Hill Auditorium, to benefit C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
The “Making Music for Mott” concert will feature a program of family-friendly classical music, from the William Tell Overture (“Lone Ranger” theme) to melodies from the opera “Carmen.” The LSO will be led by Music Director Clinton Ryan Smith and Assistant Conductor Sameer Patel, both graduate students in U-M’s orchestral conducting program.
Proceeds will help build a Ronald McDonald House in the new hospital under construction, and will support a program that brings trained musicians to patients’ rooms.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for college students and seniors, and $5 for children and students up to grade 12. All tickets are general admission. Doors open at 7 p.m. Afterglow tickets are $25 and include sparkling cider, coffee and dessert.
Tickets may be purchased at the door, or by calling 936-9134, or using a form available at www.med.umich.edu/mott/events that can be faxed or mailed. Advance orders may be paid by credit card, check or U-M payroll deduction. Tickets also will be sold at Mott Hospital and other locations.
