It is a special honor for the WDO to perform Frédéric Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the talented Krzysztof Książek. Also the WDO is looking forward to opening the concert with Jan Paderewski’s Overture for Orchestra and to ending it with Ludwig van Beethoven’s great Symphony No. 8.
The proceeds of the concerts will be donated to DKMS Foundation Poland, an organization registering unrelated bone morrow donors.
The World Doctors Orchestra (WDO) combines the pleasure of great music with charity. Two to three times a year, a selection of 1.000 physicians from over 50 nations exchange their white coats for evening attire and perform a benefit concert for people in need of healthcare. The proceeds from each concert go to selected non-profit medical aid organizations.
