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"!)
PDO has a
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:
COMMUNICATION shall become SOUND!
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.
personal - musicians coach
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!
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.
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 !

Dr.med. Dieter Pöller from Munich
Dr. Pöller studied conducting for 5 years at the Richard-Strauß-Konservatorium in Munich, founded an amateur orchestra in 1969 which he conducted for 20 years. With the first recital 18th February 1989 he founded the german doctors orchestra: For several week-end-work-phases doctors come around from all over germany and perform the freshly studied program.
A climax was the performance of the 9th symphony of Beethoven in Stade (near Hamburg) with the Symphonic Choir Hamburg. The 10-year-jubilee-concert was in Munich/Gasteig-center at 28 November 1999. 23rd January 1999 there was another concert there with prize winners of a music doctors competition: Excellent double professionalists gave several solo concertos.

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...
(Orquestra Ars Medica) seems to be the only one in Spain.
