OrchestraDocs: Theme Actual Future Past Special OrchestraPresentation

In many big cities there are doctors orchestras, also all over the world.

Our special is that you can see a dentist in a film! See section "Special" and click on navigation bar.

You can find a huge list in the section "DocPresentation" (which would have to be called "DocOrchestraPresentation"!)

The PDO is being founded, PhilharmonicDoctorsOrchestra

PDO has a double meaning:
for MusicDocs and PsychoProfessionals

targeting a complete opera production with MusicDocs
and not only producing music but
work with ourselves as in psychotherapeutic supervision
and thus get into very good and profound communication:

First of all:
The Magic Flute

See more at www.PDO.name , meet the founders Callista Janzing, Otmar Desch and Wolfgang Ellenberger and register for the very first production - "The Magic Flute" of Mozart! Click on pictures to get on their personal web pages.

Wolfgang Ellenberger

We are planning on four working phases beginning in spring 2009 until the first full opera performance will be possible. Each of the first three working phases will have a symphonic concert as a highlight including several opera arias from the production and at least one symphonic work. The climax of the fourth working phase will be one ore two performances of the entire opera!

The organisation will be formed of an orchestra, choir, solo singers, director, stage designer, costume maker. We are looking forward to discover new talents!

The place of the performance is still open, but the minimum will be a big concert hall with a modest stage setting. Another of the options in discussion is an open-air performance at an established outdoor opera festival....! In any case the video documentation will be available as DVD and online at www.YouTube.com/DoctorsTalents (84 films already there) afterwards as a multiplication platform.

Just in case there are more interested MusicDocs than necessary for the "Magic Flute" we might even run other projects in "parallel mode": Otmar Desch might setup his stage musical "The Call of the Dalai Lama" again, which has had its world premiere in Stendal/Germany 2007 and other options.

Please submit the form on the www.PDO.name web page and let us know what you can do for this production!

Finally the WDO World Doctors Orchestra has been founded!

Stefan Willich from Berlin/Germany

The new World Doctors Orchestra was founded in 2007 and had its first absolute performance on MAy 4th, 2008 in the Berlin Philharmony. It is dedicated to global symphony: our music playing will also foster the international understanding and networking of physicians and support the development of medicine and health policy in the world.

Founder and conductor is Stefan Willich, Professor in Medicine at the Charité University Medical Center in Berlin, Germany, the largest medical school in Europe (see www.charite.de/epidemiologie ). He is also an experienced and avid musician and studied violin, chamber music and conducting in Stuttgart, Berlin, Boston/Tanglewood and Paris.

We are inviting medical doctors from all over the world to share our vision and enjoy music by participating in the first sessions and inauguration concert in Berlin, Germany, in the winter of 2007/2008. The duration will be 5 days. The first concert will include works by Dvorak and Beethoven to be performed twice, in the medical community and in the Berlin Philharmonic Hall. The rehearsals include coaching by professional musicians. Apart from orchestra playing there will be ample opportunity for chamber music and socializing. Proficiency in classical instrument and orchestra experience are requested.


OrchestraDocs: Theme Actual Future Past Special OrchestraPresentation

If you are from the board of a DocOrchestra please think about this:

Often the DocOrchestras want to pull in audience (and profile themselves.....!) hiring well-known soloists for their recitals.
But are you sure this is really necessary?

There are many super-professional MusicDocs who have passed their musical professional diploma at a music academy!
Wouldn´t it be even more impressive to put this into the publicity of your recital?
Why would the audience want to hear a famous soloist (who can be heard anywhere) but only accompanied by an amateur orchestra?
It might be much more interesting to hire one of these professional MusicDocs!

If you want to do so let me know! Maybe I can give you some contact information. Right now you can look for MusicDocs at DoctorsTalents.com. One information you have already at hand:
You could engage me as a professional concert pianist with Haydn piano concerto D major [2 oboe, 2 horns] or Mozart concerto A major (KV 488) [1 flute, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns]. Your orchestra gets the music sheets as a present anyways: Download here: www.Ellenberger.name/Haydn !

Medizinerorchester Bern/Switzerland

Founded in 1968 by medical students the orchestra is mixed with other professions in the meantime. As always among medical doctors it is difficult to maintain the dates of rehearsals because of busy working conditions, said Urs Wild, the president of the orchestra on the phone. He likes the idea of the contact forum DoctorsTalents.com and could imagine that some members come for working phases of the EDO European Doctors Orchestra...

The Albert Einstein Symphony Orchestra, now in its 23rd season, is composed largely of students, housestaff and faculty of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and its affiliated hospitals, as well as talented musicians from surrounding communities.  We regularly give four concerts a year, and perform works from the early Baroque through the 20th Century, from small chamber pieces to larger Romantic symphonies and concertos.  We also have done vocal music, including recent concert performances of Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial by Jury, Iolanthe, The Gondoliers and The Mikado.
