Doctors orchestrate a nationwide tour

The World Doctors Orchestra, a nonprofit orchestra of physicians from more than 30 countries, is touring China and will perform at Beijing's National Center for the Performing Arts on Dec 4 and at Shanghai's Oriental Art Center on Dec 5.

The orchestra was founded in 2007 by Stefan Willich of Berlin's Charite University Medical Center. Under Willich's baton, the orchestra will perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No 5 Emperor, Brahms' Symphony No 4 and The Mission, a work Chinese composer Zhou Wenjun wrote for the orchestra's China tour.

Proceeds will be donated to the China International Medical Foundation.
