European Doctors Orchestra - making music for a good cause
Who we are and what we do...
We are an orchestra made up of doctors from across Europe. We perform at least two public charity concerts a year, aiming to promote the public's understanding in the performance and appreciation of music, and also to benefit other charity projects (usually related to health and well-being).
The 2013 @ITVCentral video by @andybevanitv provides an excellent audio-visual introduction to the European Doctors Orchestra and our longstanding work.
The orchestra performs right across Europe...
Past concert locations have included France (Nantes-2019/2020), Germany (Berlin-2007/2013; Essen-2019), Hungary (Budapest-2006/2016), Italy (Verona-2008), the Netherlands (Rotterdam-2017), Norway (Oslo-2011), Poland (Poznan-2009), Romania (Bucharest-2005), Slovenia (Ljubljana-2015), Switzerland (Bern-2014), and the United Kingdom (Belfast-2017; Birmingham-2013; Coventry-2018; Edinburgh-2010; Gateshead Newcastle-2011/2016; London-2012/2014/2015/2018; Manchester-2019).
The EDO trustees have been monitoring and debating the situation with Covid 19 and the planned EDO event in Olomouc. With the news that the Czech government has banned events with over 100 people and with the closure of schools and many work places it will not be possible to make the necessary arrangements or to promote the concert. There are increasing restrictions on international travel so players from some countries may not be able to make the journey, which could leave the orchestra with gaps. Thus with deep regret the trustees have decided to cancel this event. We are negotiating to run the same event in the next year or two and will share news about that in due course.
