European Doctors Orchestra - making music for a good cause
We are an orchestra made up of doctors from across Europe. We perform two charity concerts a year, usually in aid of a childrens’ charity. The orchestra’s winter meeting has traditionally been in the UK; most recently in The Cadogan Hall, London (2012, 2014), Birmingham Town Hall (2013), The Sage, Gateshead (2011), and Edinburgh (2010). The summer meeting is in a non-UK city, in June. So far, the orchestra has played in Romania (Bucharest, 2005), Hungary (Budapest, 2006), Italy (Verona, 2008), Poland (Poznan, 2009), Norway (Oslo, 2011), Germany (Berlin, 2007 and 2013), Switzerland (Bern, 2014) and Slovenia (Ljubljana, 2015).
We are sorry to announce that Min-Jin Kym will no longer be able to join us at our upcoming concert. However we are extremely grateful to Boris Brovtsyn for agreeing to step in at short notice to play the Barber violin concerto on 15 November 2015.
Boris studied at the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, and at the Guildhall School of music in London, where he won the Gold medal in 2004. He has an international reputation as a soloist and has previously played in the UK with the BBC Philharmonic, the BBC Scottish Symphony and the CBSO, with many international orchestras and and with conductors including Sir Neville Marriner, Yuro Bashmet, Neeme Jarvi, and Rumon Gamba.
The programme for the concert remains unchanged.
The orchestra's 2013 performance in Birmingham attracted significant media attention. This @ITVCentral video by @andybevanitv gives a brilliant introduction to the European Doctors Orchestra, including profiles of violinists Louise Remedios (GP) and Ruth Lester (Surgeon), and introduces the charity which we supported - the Children's Hand and ARMs charity (C.H.A.R.M.S.) based @Bham_Childrens (Birmingham Children's Hospital).
