Sunday 3 March 2024




Ulster Hall, Belfast


£10.00 - £18.00

The all-Ireland Irish Doctors Orchestra are performing at Ulster Hall, Belfast on Sunday 3 March 2024 to raise funds for Children in Northern Ireland, a charity with a focus on learning, collaboration, and influencing to improve outcomes for children, young people, and families.

Founded during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Irish Doctors Orchestra is an all-Ireland fellowship of medical professionals who are also classically trained musicians. The concept of the IDO is to provide an opportunity for medics from across Ireland to get together and create music as a therapy to the stresses and challenges we all face in our professional lives. The doctors join together for rehearsals over a period of days which includes coaching by professional musicians and culminates in a public performance.

The Ulster Hall concert will feature over eighty IDO members, led by professional conductor, Sinead Hayes. The choirs of St Dominic’s Grammar School and St Malachy’s College will provide accompaniment on the night.

The programme includes Verdi’s La Forza Del Destino Overture and ‘Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves’ from Nabucco, and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 ‘From the New World’. The concert will end with the rousing ‘O Fortuna’ from Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
