For the first time in its 10-year history, the World Doctors Orchestra visited Munich and on the evening of 22 April and played a brilliant concert at the historic Herkulessaal at the Münchener Residenz. Members and friends of the German Australian Business Council joined the symphony orchestra’s performance of pieces by Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner, including arias sung by renowned soloist mezzosoprano Stella Grigorian and a highly demanding arrangement of ‘Der Ring’. Led by conductor Professor Stefan Willich, the World Doctors Orchestra is a unique symphony orchestra consisting of physicians from more than 50 countries who come together to perform high-end classical music for a charitable cause. The evening’s proceeds were donated to Obdachlosenhilfe St. Bonifaz in Munich.
Upon invitation by our corporate member Sonic Healthcare Germany, German Australian Business Council members joined a reception immediately after the concert themed ‘Meet the Musicians’.
