A disproportionate number of medical doctors are practising musicians in what little spare time they have.

Next month the World Doctors Orchestra with members from 40 countries will join the Buffalo Philharmonic in a fund-raiser concert with Jo-Ann Falletta.  The rehearsals should be pretty interesting.

    Melbourne doctors orchestra “Corpus Medicorum” will travel to Saint Petersburg on 17/6 for a concert, a ball and hospital visits, business meetings etc. I’m guest leader despite no doctorate = firing from ANU School of Music in 2012. Maybe I can now claim to be an honorary doctor?
