We are happy to announce that, after six seasons of tremendous growth and development, the Duke Medicine Orchestra has changed its name to the Durham Medical Orchestra. The name change reflects our widening partnerships with health professionals and colleagues in the greater Durham area and our increasing collaborations with our community outside of the Duke Health system. We will continue our mission to unite musicians and community at the intersection of music and health. Under the artistic direction of Dr. Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant, we will continue public performances in Baldwin Auditorium, at other campus events, and throughout the greater Durham community.
The Durham Medical Orchestra is composed primarily of health care professionals and graduate students in life science disciplines, as well as friends and family members who share our goals of musical excellence and outreach. We have over 100 members, and we welcome interested musicians and volunteers. Please see our website or our Facebook page for details about the orchestra and our supporters in the Duke University community, in Durham, and across the Triangle, and to learn more about our mission and projects. If you are interested in participating or in supporting the DMO, please contact us directly through either of these sites.
We look forward to this new season as the Durham Medical Orchestra, and we invite all to attend our free public concert on December 11, 2016, at 5:00 p.m. in Baldwin Auditorium on Duke’s East Campus.
