The Philadelphia Doctors’ Chamber Orchestra is a nonprofit organization made up of approximately 40 volunteer musicians. Our mission is to present and perpetuate symphonic music for the community.
The orchestra was founded and is conducted by Dr. Fawzi Habboushe, a general and thoracic surgeon. The membership was originally comprised largely, but not exclusively, of medical professionals. Our current membership reflects many diverse backgrounds, all brought together by a love of music.
The orchestra has been performing for 25 years in several different venues including universities, concert halls, churches and hospitals throughout the Delaware Valley. The Philadelphia Doctors’ Chamber Orchestra relies upon contributions from patrons, the generosity of its conductor and its devoted musicians.
