Check out this video of medical professionals making music together during the pandemic in the yale Medical orchestra he virus has closed the doors to in-person performances, but musician and Evanston resident Taichi Fukumura is involved in a project that offers an alternative. The symphonic music videos by the National Virtual Medical Orchestra represent the first-ever nationwide collaboration of university-based medical orchestras. Founded in the spring of 2020, NVMO is giving medical workers, researchers, doctors, nurses, and medical students around the country a way to enjoy the benefits of their soul-soothing art while they stay safe. John Masco, NVMO founder, has said, “Every rehearsal is a balm for the participants.” The 20-some orchestras in medical schools scattered around the country – including the three-year-old Northwestern Medical Orchestra – were not connected until last year. Mr. Fukumura, for example, did not realize that two other graduates of the high school he attended were also conducting medical orchestras.
