The doctor will see you now. She’s playing at Symphony Hall.

Louise Remedios is a general practitioner in Edward Elgar’s town, Malvern.

When she closes her practice for the day, she goes home to practice. The violin, that is.

Dr Louise (top left) is a violinist, a member of the European Doctors Orchestra. She will be playing at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on November 24.

    Well, medicine and music are closely knit—both are healers.
    The powers of music cannot be over-stated—so many have benefited beyond measure.
    The good doctor is doing both–how laudable.
    I am a self-taught amateur fiddler.

    I well know the fact that there are doctors who are talented musicians. My father was a pediatrician who loved playing string quartets and was also a member of the first violin section of the New Haven Symphony for many, many years as well as serving as concertmaster of the Business and Professional Men’s Orchestra for a while in New Haven. A number of his quartet partners were also doctors, not to mention some professional musicians and assorted students from Yale Music School. His love for music strongly influenced me to become a professional musician (now retired).

    PS: One of his fellow pediatricians got up at 6:00 AM in the morning to practice violin and piano sonatas with another doctor, who played piano very well.

  3. Remedios is a great name for a doctor.
