» An Encore of Living

Michael Lynn is a highly accomplished musician. He is an expert in flute and recorder, a professor at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and a devotee of baroque music. He has played with many symphonies and ensembles, including for the inaugural luncheons of both Presidents Obama and Trump. In addition to teaching at the Conservatory, Michael served for a time as the associate dean. However, all that stopped when he was told he would need a liver transplant to live.

Listen as Michael chronicles his journey and the impact of liver disease on his life and career. You’ll want to tune in for next week’s episode, when well continue Michael’s story and learn how it influenced a colleague, Robert, and his 11-year-old daughter to take action.
