A Look Back: Lymph Notes

A Look Back: Lymph Notes

Decades ago, a histology lesson inspired Einstein medical students to call their a cappella group the Lymph Notes—a name that has stuck. Those Lymph Notes, above in the black and white photo, “sang at the slightest provocation,” according to the 1960 yearbook, “and it was hard to keep them shut up for very long.”

Their repertoire ranged from folk songs to numbers by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, and included tunes such as “If I Loved You” from the musical Carousel. The songs have changed over the past 60 years, but the Lymph Notes are still harmonizing. Between 12 and 20 medical students practice every week, and the group performs at an annual concert each spring in the Mary and Karl Robbins Auditorium.

Organizer and second-year student Sarah Kellner, in the color photo at far right, says, “It’s a way to keep music in our lives, and art and medicine go hand in hand.”
