For many of us, music is one of the few passions we are able to indulge in alongside the busy schedule of medical school. Yet as we endure long days in hospitals and grow accustomed to the emotionally draining lives of doctors, it becomes tempting to retire our bows and reeds in exchange for tendon hammers and stethoscopes.

Music has the power to improve mental health and wellbeing. It serves as an outlet for stress, an opportunity to express ourselves creatively and a reminder of the colourful life outside the hospital walls.

AMSO was therefore founded to provide this outlet for medical students around Australia, bringing them together for a weekend of intense rehearsals to culminate in a concert in May 2020. This year, in line with our passion for using music to benefit both medical student wellbeing and the wider community, AMSO will be partnering with Beyond Blue and Zonta House, a group dedicated to supporting women experiencing domestic and family violence. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to these organisations.

Your contribution will not only go towards the essential production costs for the orchestra, but also allow us to maintain affordable registration fees and ensure that AMSO is an accessible opportunity for all medical students.

The Australian Medical Students’ Orchestra will bring up to 100 medical students with a passion for music from around the country together this year to bring joyous classical music to Melbourne. Young medical student musicians from all around the nation will join for three days of intense rehearsals, culminating in a concert to take place in Melbourne in August 2019 to celebrate their love of classical music.

For many of us, music is one of the few passions we can indulge in alongside the busy schedule of medical school. As we endure long days in hospitals and grow accustomed to the emotionally draining lives of doctors, it becomes tempting to retire our bows and reeds in exchange for tendon hammers and stethoscopes. It is easy to stop at the fork in the road and choose one path, medicine, and forget the other: music. AMSO is the opportunity to bring this forward and rejuvenate this passion. At this concert, in addition to ticket sales, we will collect donations for the Very Special Kids, the only paediatric hospice in Victoria. Not only do we share a love for music, but we are also passionate about using our music to benefit others.
