Music and Medicine

Dr. Quinn Peeper, a member of the Washington and Lee Class of 1982, is an ob-gyn with a busy practice in New Orleans. He also has a flourishing musical career. He and partner Michael Harold are well known around New Orleans for their piano performances. They are bringing their talents to Quinn’s alma mater on Friday, Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m., for a recital at Wilson Hall. The duo will play selections from Handel, Mozart and Murkowski, plus Chopin, in commemoration of that composer’s birth 200 years ago.

When he was a student at W&L, Quinn accompanied the glee club. He went on to obtain an M.A. from Oxford and his M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He did his OB/GYN residency at Cornell.

The concert is sponsored by the Lexington branch of the English-Speaking Union (ESU). Quinn serves as president of the New Orleans chapter of the ESU. Tickets are available at the door or at Cocoa Mill Chocolate, in Lexington.
