Connor Stubblefield is an M2 at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. She is also an accomplished cello player and a member of the band Temple Worship.
“Temple Worship is the praise team for the College and Young Adults Class at Midtown Baptist Temple. A band formed with a heart to respond and obey to the Spirit’s leading. Each of our members is different: some have full time jobs, others are full-time students, some are classically trained musicians while others are self-trained. We are white, black, Hispanic, blue-collar, white-collar…but we are the temple, and we offer our worship. The Lord deserves to be praised, and Temple Worship seeks to invite all who will listen to join.” –C&YA
The Doctor’s Notes is a musical group made up of first year and second year medical students from the University of Kansas Medical School. These students perform A cappella songs at many school events. The group will perform the song “Hallelujah” at the Willed Body Ceremony as tribute to the people who gifted their bodies to be used to further our medical education.
