The Doctors’ Orchestra | Freedom from Torture concert

You're invited to The Doctors' Orchestra's 10th gala concert in aid of Freedom from Torture.

11 March 2019 | Book tickets

Taking place on 11 March at London's prestigious Cadogan Hall (Sloane Square), conductor Stephen Brearley will once again bring together an ensemble of 75 musically gifted doctors to play in aid of UK charity Freedom from Torture.

Following a sell-out concert last year, and to mark its tenth concert in support of Freedom from Torture, this year The Doctors’ Orchestra welcomes two incredible young musicians.

Tianyou Ma, a prizewinner of the 2018 Menuhin Competition in Geneva, and Maxim Calver, a finalist in the 2018 BBC Young Musician Competition, will join forces in Brahms’s magisterial Double Concerto for violin and cello.

The concert will also include Berlioz’s rarely played but compelling King Lear Overture and Elgar’s magnificent First Symphony.

Conductor Stephen Brearley spends his days in the operating theatre as a vascular surgeon. He says:

“We all know from personal experience that doctors face demanding work pressures and difficult decisions on a daily basis. That’s why it is very restorative to have a parallel life in music, especially when we are playing for Freedom from Torture.”

Tickets are from just £15 and can be booked online by calling the box office on 020 7730 4500.

All funds raised will provide vital care and support for those who have experienced the devastating effect of torture and are seeking to rebuild their lives in the UK.
