We are delighted to be able to share with you our plans for the future as the "new normal" becomes clearer.

Due to ongoing uncertainty re audience numbers, performer numbers, not to mention possible future outbreaks and travel restrictions, we have decided not to organise a national concert for 2021. It takes at least 4-6 months to organise a national concert, and we feel this is not possible at the moment.

However, there are some local events happening featuring Australian Doctors Orchestra (ADO) members, which we’d love you to attend.

  The Darwin Symphony Orchestra has a number of ADO members playing with them; they have one final concert for 2021 on Saturday 27th November 2021 called Two Fifths.

We are planning for a national ADO concert in the second half of 2022 in Adelaide - come back here from time to time or visit our Facebook page to get the latest news and happenings.

The Australian Doctors Orchestra (ADO) is a unique national fellowship of medical professionals who are also classically trained musicians. Since our first concert in 1993, the orchestra has played a concert every year and in every state, using each occasion to raise funds for charity.

Our concerts feature acclaimed soloists and orchestral performances.

Up to 100 medical professionals from all around Australia share two days of final rehearsals culminating in a performance on a Sunday afternoon.

Our Concert in Orange was performed under the baton of maestro Carlo Antonioli .

It commenced with Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, and featured the acclaimed violinist Rachael Kwa performing Korngold: Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35, and concluded with Sibelius: Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 43 .

The members of the orchestra donate their time and the proceeds of the concerts are given to charities.

For this concert we were delighted to support Orange Push for Palliative.

In the charity's words

“Everyone has an experience of losing someone that they love and care for. Everyone has a story to tell. Some memories are painful, some are peaceful and positive. But memories will always remain of that time. Orange Push for Palliative works to support the right of people to make real choices about how their last days are spent."
