About the Los Angeles Doctors Symphony Orchestra:
The Los Angeles Doctors Symphony Orchestra is one of the
oldest community orchestras in the United States. Founded in 1953 by Dr. Reuben
Strauss with 35 doctors, dentists, veterinarians, nurses, and allied health care
professionals, it boasted 70 members at the time of its first concert at the
Philharmonic Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles in 1954. The orchestra’s mission
is to offer high-quality, affordable concerts to the diverse communities
of Southern California, to support important medical causes, and to provide
musical growth and fellowship for its performing members. Over the years,
conductors and guest soloists have included Henri Temianka, Mehli Mehta, Felix
Slatkin, Jeffrey Kahane, David Weiss, Stephen Prutsman, Tamaki Kawakubo,
Elizabeth Pitcairn, Sam Fischer, Mitchell Newman, Rufus Choi, Vijay Gupta, and
Paul Wiancko. The orchestra has played to sold-out audiences hosting guests
such as Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds, and Jerry Lewis. The orchestra has
supported the performance of new music by local composers and has premiered
works by Adrienne Albert, David Avshalomov, Andrew Feazelle, Thomas Goss and
Karim Elmahmoudi, currently our composer-in-residence whose work Orbit plays
daily at the space shuttle “Endeavour” exhibit in the California Science Center.
More recently, the orchestra has broadened its membership to encompass people
from diverse backgrounds including the legal profession, science, and education,
as well as other dedicated amateur musicians. In this respect we consider
ourselves a true community orchestra. We maintain close ties to the medical
community with performances that raise funds for medical causes such as relief
for tsunami victims in Japan and for autism research at UCLA.
