HKMA Orchestra 香港醫學會管弦樂團

The medical professionals show their concern to the public not only within but also outside their clinics and hospital wards. A group of doctors devoted to both medicine and music decide to play on stage with their strings and bows to bring joy to patients in hospitals and to raise money for those in need. 


With this sacred mission, the Hong Kong Medical Association Orchestra was born in March 1989 with the objectives of cultivating good public relations by visiting homes for the aged, centres for the disabled and orphanage, etc.; to raise funds for various charitable organizations; and to recruit talented doctors and create a forum for their mutual enjoyment. 


Since its inception, the Orchestra has actively participated in many charity and community affairs. Every year, a Charity Concert has been held and more than HK$5 million has been raised over the past 13 years for organizations including Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care, Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society, Hong Kong AIDS Foundation, Hong Kong Society for the Deaf, HKMA Organ Donation Register Fund Ltd. the Hong Kong Workers Welfare Association, Hong Kong Donno Syndrome Association and Hong Kong Museum of Medical Science. 


Other activities most cherished by the Orchestra members are their yearly visits at Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve to various hospitals to play for the inpatients during these festive seasons. The Orchestra has also been playing at St. John's Cathedral for the Family Christmas concert for the past four years. Furthermore, the Orchestra has given Easter Concert at the Chapel of Christ the King, St. Paul Convent.


Although most of the Orchestra members are doctors and their immediate relatives, other professionals are welcome. There are engineers, lawyers, architects, nurses, dentists, accountants and a vet playing in the Orchestra. Rehearsals are held once a week on Wednesday evenings. This promotes contact amongst doctors themselves and with members of other professions. 


The HKMA Orchestra is one of the best examples of solidarity of the medical fraternity. In the years ahead, the HKMA Orchestra will continue to perform for the meaningful purpose of charity with the pinnacle of the medical profession - a heart that cares. 


醫療專業人員對公眾的關懷並不僅限於診室及醫院病房,更延伸到診室及醫院之外。一部份在醫療事業和音樂方面均深有造詣的醫生決定登台演奏,為住院的病人帶來歡樂,亦可為有需要人士籌募捐款。


出於這一神聖的使命,香港醫學會管弦樂隊在1989年3月誕生,目標是透過訪問老人院、殘疾人士及孤兒中心等活動培養良好的公共關係;為各慈善機構籌款;招募優秀醫生,製造一個促進交流和分享樂趣的機會。


自成立以來,管弦樂團多次參加慈善及社區活動。管弦樂團每年舉行一次慈善音樂會,十三年來為善終服務會、香港防癌會、香港愛滋病基金會、香港聾人福利促進會、器官捐贈登記基金有限公司(Organ Donation Register Fund Ltd)及香港工人權益聯盟、唐氏綜合症協會及香港醫學博物館等籌集了超過五百萬港元資金。


管弦樂團的其他重要活動是每年聖誕前夕及新年前夕訪問各間醫院,為病人演出。過去四年管弦樂團亦在聖約翰教堂的家庭聖誕音樂會演出。此外,管弦樂團還在聖保祿教堂舉行復活節音樂會。


雖然管弦樂團的成員大部份是醫生及其家屬,亦有不少其他專業人士。其中有工程師、律師、建築師、護士、牙醫、會計師以及一名獸醫。管弦樂團每逢週三晚上進行排練,增進了醫生之間以及醫生與其他專業人士之間的聯絡。


醫學會管弦樂團是醫學同行團結一致的典範。展望未來,醫學會管弦樂團將本著醫療專業的最高宗旨,即奉獻愛心,繼續作慈善演出。
