In 2007, a German cardiologist, Dr. Stefan Willich, founded an orchestra that draws on a roster of more than 500 doctors from around the world.  They give concerts to raise awareness about health care, and to raise money for important medical causes.

The World Doctors Orchestra is coming to Maryland this weekend.  They’ll perform the music of Barber, Mozart, and Mahler, Sunday evening at Strathmore Hall in Bethesda.  Tom Hall talks to Dr. Naoko Takebe, a researcher at the National Cancer Institute in Rockville, and a violinist in the orchestra.

The World Doctors Orchestra performs Sunday evening at 7pm at the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda.  The program is a remembrance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and a benefit for Whitman Walker Health, which specializes in LGBT and HIV care for residents in Washington.  The orchestra will play music by Samuel Barber and Mozart, as well as Gustav Mahler’s massive Resurrection Symphony, which features the National Philharmonic Chorale and distinguished soloists.
