Andrew Schulman has performed for four decades as a concert soloist throughout  the United States and Europe. After a hiatus from concert performance during the years he was developing the Medical Musician specialty he returned to the concert stage in October 2019, playing  to a full house at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall (photo on right). His concert repertoire is an interplay of classical and popular music, all in his own arrangements for the guitar. (You can see the full program here.) A stage patter combines humor and brief but informative commentary about the music being performed.


Andrew Schulman  has combined music and conversation about his work as a Medical Musician in an evening called: Medical Musician: A Storyteller and Travel Guide that is both informative and entertaining. Starting with his own story, about how Bach's music saved him in a coma, and discussing his work since 2010 in developing music in critical care medicine, he explores with his guitar and through storytelling and reading excerpts from his book, Waking the Spirit, how music has such a powerful effect on the human mind, body, and soul, delighting and informing audiences.
