    REVISED: Mayo Clinic Announces Performances in October for the Rosemary and Meredith Willson Harmony for Mayo Program

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Oct. 10, 2013  — The public is invited to enjoy four Rosemary and Meredith Willson Harmony for Mayo Program concerts in October. Performances will be on Mondays from 12:10 to 1 p.m. in Barbara Woodward Lips Atrium, subway level, Rochester Methodist Hospital, Charlton Building, 10 Third Ave. NW.

The musicians for the Oct. 21 performance have changed.

Oct. 21: The John Paulson Quartet will perform a jazz concert. As professor and leader of jazz groups at Winona State and

Paulson (tenor sax and flute) joins Clifford Jack, M.D., professor of radiology at Mayo Clinic and local jazz guitar favorite; drummer Dr. Rich MacDonald, assistant professor of music at Winona State University; and freelance bassist Michael Sloane, a general services employee at Mayo Clinic.

Sponsored by Mayo Clinic Center for Humanities in Medicine, the Rosemary and Meredith Willson Harmony for Mayo Program is coordinated by the Choral Arts Ensemble of Rochester.
