Our first concert for 2019 will be held on Queensland's glorious Sunshine Coast

Sunday 12th May 2019

at Venue 114 (Phone 07-5202-1777).

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.

In May we venture to the Sunshine Coast for the first time. Situated just over an hour's drive north from Brisbane, the Sushine Coast features kilometres of sparkling white sand and rolling surf - from Noosa at the northern end, famous for family fun as well as the rich-and-famous, to relaxed Caloundra in the south.

A place of numerous natural wonders and local cultural attractions, the Sunshine Coast retains large tracts of natural forest in the hinterland to the west where scattered, vibrant communities of potters, painters, sculptors and musicians thrive.

Up to 100 medical professionals from all around Australia will share two days of final rehearsals culminating in a performance on the Sunday afternoon at Venue 114 at Kawana Downs on the Sunshine Coast.

Our Concert will be performed under the baton of maestro Warwick Potter.

It will commence with Shostakovich's Festival Overture, feature the acclaimed pianist Liam Viney performing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, and will conclude with Rachmaninoff's Symphony Number 2.

Put the date in your diary, and plan to stay a few days to soak up the delights of sun, surf, art and music in glorious surroundings.

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

All the proceeds of this concert will be given to Wishlist, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to fundraising for the needs of the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.

This will be an extraordinary event not to be missed.

  Here we are playing at our 25th anniversary concert at Chatswood in Sydney, under the baton of Nicholas Milton.
