Los Angeles Doctors Symphony Orchestra



About Us

Founded in 1953, we are one of the oldest community orchestras in the United States. Despite our name, it is not necessary to be a member of the medical profession to play in the orchestra. We have broadened our membership to include musicians with diverse backgrounds such as the legal profession, science, and education; in addition, we augment our membership with emerging professional musicians, giving them the opportunity to showcase their talents and elevate the level of our performances.

Our mission is to offer high-quality concerts to the diverse communities of Southern California (Culver City, Santa Monica, West Hollywood), to support important medical causes, to educate young musicians in the discipline and joys of music, and to provide musical growth and fellowship for our performing members.
