Watch a Concert Now

Performances are a part of the culture of Michigan Medicine. For over 30 years, concerts have been held in-person in the University Hospital main lobby, or outdoors in the courtyard in the summertime. Online performances in music, theater, and dance are streamed twice a month and are available for watching on demand on YouTube anytime after broadcast.

Art workshops are available for the entire Michigan Medicine community. See our events listing below to explore workshops and other events.
