World Doctors Orchestra

The World Doctors Orchestra (WDO) was founded in 2008 and combines the pleasure of fine music with global medical responsibility. Three to four times a year, some 100 physicians who are also accomplished musicians from all over the world exchange their white coats for evening attire and perform a benefit concert for medical aid projects in different cities around the globe. While the daily work of a doctor focuses on healing one patient at a time, together as an orchestra they promote the conviction that neither national borders nor political or economic interests should limit access to basic healthcare. This year, the World Doctors Orchestra will perform a special concert at Kleinhans Music Hall to benefit Kevin Guest House.

The program will be led by Founder and conductor Stefan Willich, Professor in Medicine at the Charité University Medical Center in Berlin and former President of the Berlin Music Conservatory Hanns Eisler, and includes:

• Samuel Barber, Overture to The School for Scandal
• Reinhold Glière, Concerto for Horn and Orchestra, Sheryl Hadeka, BPO French horn, soloist
• Hector Berlioz, Symphonie fantastique

WDO is an independent non-profit organization driven by the spirit and dedication of its members.
Tickets for this event are $20 for general admission/$10 for students with valid ID.

A statement from the WDO on COVID-19:
WDO is aware of growing concerns around the spread of COVID-19 and is monitoring developments related to the coronavirus outbreak and potential impact on travel. We expect the session going ahead as planned, however there is obviously some uncertainty with respect to disease spread and international regulations. In any event we will follow all guidelines and procedures put in place by the CDC and local health department officials.
