World Doctors Orchestra

with Dame Evelyn Glennie

Medics from across the world swap their stethoscopes for instruments in concert with leading percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, raising money for healthcare-for-the-homeless charity Pathway.

And it’s not just the musicians taking a break from their day jobs: with hoovers, floor polishers and a rifle making their way into the orchestra, this is a concert you won’t forget in a hurry. A programme filled with optimism and humour combines the unequivocally British styles of Bax, Elgar and Malcolm Arnold (in his 100th anniversary year) with a percussive tour-de-force from multiple Grammy Award-winning American composer Michael Daugherty.

Extending their medical mission beyond hospital walls, each World Doctors Orchestra concert raises money for a different medical charity – in this case Pathway, which is dedicated to transforming health services for homeless people.
