European Doctors Orchestra - making music for a good cause

We are an orchestra made up of doctors from across Europe.  We perform 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 orchestra’s winter meeting has traditionally been in the UK; most recently in The Ulster Hall, Belfast (2017), The Sage, Gateshead / Newecastle (2011, 2016), The Cadogan Hall, London (2012, 2014, 2015), Birmingham Town Hall (2013), 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 and 2016), Italy (Verona, 2008), Poland (Poznan, 2009), Norway (Oslo, 2011), Germany (Berlin, 2007 and 2013), Switzerland (Bern, 2014), Slovenia (Ljubljana, 2015), and the Netherlands (Rotterdam, 2017).

Mahler at the Ulster Hall

Thanks go to our conductor Tim Redmond, the Irish Doctors Choir and their chorus-master Brian MacKay, our soloists Orla Boylan and Doreen Curran, and our concert-master Stephen Cullen for bringing together a powerful and unforgettable night of music at the Ulster Hall!


Our thanks also go to the local organising committee for the huge amount of work that they put in to make the event possible.


Final question - when can we come back to Belfast?!
