Please join us for "Celebrating Music at Mayo Featuring Lewis Lipnick and Friends: A Reprise

You won’t want to miss the world premieres of “Ethereal”, “La Escueta”, “Tango for Two”, and “Dr. Tango Concerto”, composed exclusively for this concert by world renowned Argentinian composer Noelia Escalzo.

This free concert is open to Mayo Clinic staff, patients and the community. This event is made possible through the generosity of the Jerry and Sonja Wenger Endowment for Humanities in Medicine.


“Music is an international language that transcends all cultural barriers, soothes the body and soul, and can help us better deal with life’s stresses,” according to Lewis Lipnick, Principal Contrabassoonist with the National Symphony Orchestra. Lipnick sees a parallel between the orchestra, where musicians combine their various talents to bring music to life, and Mayo Clinic, where the care providers and allied health staff work together to provide the world’s best medical care.

The ensemble of musicians performing with Mr. Lipnick include Mayo Clinic employees J. Michael Bostwick, M.D. (clarinet), Psychiatry; Mimi Tung (piano), Development; Allen Bishop, M.D. (oboe), Orthopedic Surgery; Matt Schuelke (French horn), Graduate Student; Tiffany Strande (violin), Pulmonary Function Technician; as well as, Elizabeth William Gomoll (flute), flutist for the Rochester Symphony; and Rochester native Thomas Hiniker (heckelphone), founder and owner of Hiniker Woodwinds. The ensemble will be conducted by Jere Lantz, President/CEO and Artistic Director of Rochester Symphony.
