You may have read about the Longwood Symphony Orchestra (LSO) in the paper or heard them on your favorite classical radio station. Yet the LSO is not just any orchestra. The LSO began in 1982 began in 1982 with a group of talented Boston-area physicians, med students and health-care professionals and, thanks to Harvard Medical School pediatrician and violinist Lisa Wong, who became the president of the LSO in 1991, the orchestra has transformed into a proud, extraordinary group of musicians with fans around the globe. In Scales to Scalpels, Dr. Wong chronicles how the music acumen of these physicians affects the way they administer healing and, in turn, how their medical work affects their music. How does practicing the art of music transform the art of practicing medicine?


Dr. Lisa Wong is an associate in pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and maintains her own private practice in Boston’s South Shore. She is the president of the Longwood Symphony, a board member of young Audiences of Massachusetts and helped start “Bring Back the Music,” which revitalized in-class instrumental music instruction in Boston public schools.
