The London Medical Orchestra was formed in 1954, consisting mainly of refugee doctors and dentists from central Europe, conducted by Dr Hans Ucko and led by Dr J Bachner. It combined with the Three Hospitals Orchestra in 1964. Although many of the present members of the Orchestra are not members of the medical or ancillary professions, the Orchestra continues to have as its main purpose the supporting of medical charities through fund-raising concerts. Among former conductors are Norman Del Mar, Colin Davis and Bernard Keefe. Mr Dickson Wright was president for many years. Sir Adrian Boult and Jacqueline du Pré are among our past Vice Presidents.
LMO is a registered charity (No. 272002). Our three concerts a year raise money for medically related charities.
