  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 (except 2021) and in every state, using each occasion to raise funds for charity.

Up to 100 medical professionals from all around Australia share two days of final rehearsals culminating in a performance on a Sunday afternoon, featuring acclaimed soloists and providing exciting orchestral performances.

  The Australian Doctor's Orchestra most recently performed in Toowoomba on 16 June 2024, under the baton of Peter Luff.

We performed:
  • Verdi - Overture to the Force of Destiny
  • Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto with soloist Ike See
  • Grieg - Peer Gynt Suite No. 1
  • Stravinsky - Firebird Suite (1919 version)

As always, this was a fundraiser for our nominated charity, which this year was Life Flight.

Work is already underway for our next concert, which is planned for Sydney in October 2025 - please check back here for more details as they become available!
