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 Cadogan Hall, London (2012, 2014, 2015), 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 and 2016), Italy (Verona, 2008), Poland (Poznan, 2009), Norway (Oslo, 2011), Germany (Berlin, 2007 and 2013), Switzerland (Bern, 2014) and Slovenia (Ljubljana, 2015).
If you are a doctor working in Europe and you would like to apply for a place to play in our Belfast concert in November 2017 then please contact the relevant section organiser now. The application process is described here. Successful applicants will have 14 days from receipt of offer of a place to confirm their acceptance of the offer. Rehearsals for the next concert begin on the evening of Thursday 23rd November 2017 with the concert on Sunday 26th November 2017.
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).
