An Exciting Time to Be Part of World Doctors Orchestra
2018 marked WDO's Jubilee - ten years of making a difference in the lives of others through music. We took our mission to Dubai, Hamburg, Berlin, Washington, D.C., Warsaw, and Krakow, donating tens of thousands of dollars to healthcare-related charities.
2019 promises to be no less impactful. Our physician-musicians will travel to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Paris, Reims, Houston, Lisbon, and Porto.
On August 17, 2019, WDO will perform Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 featuring Mei Rui, DMA (meiruipiano.com), and Brahms's Symphony No. 3 at Stude Concert Hall in Houston, Texas. The proceeds of the concert will benefit A Children's House (achildrenshouse.org) which provides comprehensive pediatric dermatology services for patients in a comfortable and nurturing environment. Tickets are expected to sell out and can be purchased at this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/world-doctors-orchestra-in-houston-tickets-58588695365.
I encourage you to visit our "Upcoming Events" tab for details about the charities that will be supported at each session and the major works scheduled for each performance.
We encourage you to help us as we help others - your tax deductible donation makes possible the concerts that spread awareness about the selected charities and provides much needed funding in support of those worthwhile causes.
On behalf of the leadership team, the volunteer musicians, and the charities we touch, thank you for your generosity ... and we'll see you at the next show!
Who We Are and What We Do
For the uninitiated, the North American iteration of World Doctors Orchestra was founded in 2011 so that we might better serve the charities and donors of the United States and Canada; WDO's sister organization was established in Berlin in 2008. Our vision is to remove barriers to access to healthcare via the international language of music; our mission is to provide worthy healthcare charities with financial development opportunities that qualify as tax deductible charitable contributions in the United States.
WDO now includes more than 1,200 physician-musicians and has provided half a million Euros to support charities including:
Ambulance Boat for Bolenge
The Association of the Friends of the German Heart Centre Berlin
BC Children’s Hospital Foundation
Berlin Center for the Treatment of Torture Victims
Centre Intégré de Recherches Biocliniques d’Abidian
Centre of Disabled Children and Young People of Armenia
Corporación de Adelanto Amigo de Panguipulli
Dentists for Africa
Förderkreis für krebskranke Kinder und Jugendliche Bonn
Formosa Cancer Foundation
The Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland
George Mark Children's House
HOPE Cape Town
Hugo Tempelman Foundation
The Michael Foundation
Refugio de Cristo de Valparaíso
The Seattle Times Fund for the Needy
Whitman Walker Health Clinic
While the daily work of our physician-musicians focuses on healing one patient at a time, as an orchestra we promote the conviction that neither national borders nor political or economic interests should limit access to basic healthcare. Your support of our upcoming sessions makes this conviction a reality.

World Doctors Orchestra USA:
Serving Healthcare Charities from the Concert Hall
At least three times a year, some 125 physicians from all over the world exchange their white coats for evening attire and perform benefit concerts to support global medical aid projects. While their daily work focuses on healing one patient at a time, as an orchestra they promote the conviction that neither national borders nor political or economic interests should limit access to basic healthcare.
As a result of the generosity of people like you, WDO has taken performances in world class venues in Armenia, Austria, China, Germany, Taiwan, South Africa, and the U.S. and translated them into financial support for organizations including: George Mark Children's House, The Free Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio; Whitman Walker Health in Washington, D.C.; The Hugo Tempelman Foundation's Ndlovu Medical Center in Elandsdoorn, South Africa; the Formosa Cancer Foundation in Taiwan; and Dentists for Africa in Kenya.
