The Nebraska Medical Orchestra, a collaborative project between UNO and UNMC, featured on NPR.

Laughter may be the best medicine but music is not far behind!

The Nebraska Medical Orchestra (NMO) was created in 2018 as a collaborative project between UNMC and the UNO School of Music, the Nebraska Medical Orchestra is comprised of students, faculty, and staff from UNMC and Nebraska Medicine with the support of UNO School of Music faculty and students as mentors.

Dr. Washington Garcia, professor and director of UNO’s School of Music, has been working with partners at UNMC to develop this “medical orchestra” for the benefit of patients, their families, and medical staff as well.

Dr. Garcia joins Mike Hogan “Live & Local” to discuss the genesis of this program and the many benefits it produces.
