The Los Angeles Doctors Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1953, presents concerts in Culver City, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica in fulfillment of its mission of enriching Southern California communities with the healing power of music, supporting important medical causes, partnering with groups that support young musicians in their pursuit of the discipline and joys of musical expression, and providing musical growth and fellowship for its performing members. The orchestra has been led by Maestro Ivan Shulman since 1990.
This performance is made possible in part by a Culver City Performing Arts Grant with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment, and by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
