On 19th October 2013, I was invited to sing with the Deutsches Ärzteorchester in beautiful Boppard on the Rhein. Along with Wagner’s beloved Wesendonck Lieder, composed on texts by Mathilde Wesendonck, the concert featured music by Verdi and Dvorak.
Conducted by Alex Mottok, the Deutsches Ärzteorchester was founded in 1989 and consists of around 130 members, the majority of whom practice medicine in cities and towns from all around Germany. They collaborate around three times a year, work intensively together, and put on concerts to benefit local and international charities.
