The Doctors' Orchestra will give a concert at London's Cadogan Hall on March 4th in support of human rights charity Freedom From Torture.
Made up completely from doctors and medical professionals, the Doctors' Orchestra will be giving a concert in support of human rights charity Freedom From Torture on March 4th at London's Cadogan Hall.
The concert will feature works inspired by themes of Shakespeare and Byron, including a performance of Berlioz's Harold In Italy with violist Philip Dukes guesting.
Duncan Bew, a member of the orchestra, said: "Despite a busy schedule as a consultant trauma surgeon, you make time for the things you like. I build music into my busy schedule because I love doing it."
Conductor Stephen Brearley, a consultant and vascular surgeon at Whipps Cross Hospital and Royal Hospital London, commented on the orchestra: "There is a sense of collegiality within the orchestra because they are members of the same profession and understand each other’s lifestyles. It’s a very happy, friendly group with a wonderful atmosphere who play the music they love."
