About 70 doctors will down their stethoscopes and pick up musical instruments for the annual New Zealand Doctors' Orchestra performance in the Dunedin Town Hall tomorrow.
Conductor Peter Adams, of the University of Otago, said it was the sixth time the orchestra had gathered, and this year's concert would be part of the university's 150th celebrations, many of the doctors in the orchestra having trained at Dunedin's medical school.
Associate Prof Adams said the orchestra was formed to provide medical musicians with an opportunity to play in a high-quality national orchestra, and enhance work-life balance.
The orchestra will perform Dvorak's Symphony No.9, the world premiere of Dunedin composer Anthony Ritchie's Hippocratic Hymn and Brahms' Academic Overture.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to charities.
