Most openings are in the string sections.

The orchestra rehearses from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in the Margherio Conference Room at Scott Hall on the WSU School of Medicine campus. The orchestra performs three full symphony concerts each year, in addition to a number of chamber concert performances.

Membership is open to anyone in the health field.

The non-profit organization explores the connections between music and healing, fosters partnerships among medical and health care professionals, and provides community services and community arts services to improve the quality of life in Detroit.
