Share Your Talents, Join Our Orchestra

We’re looking for musically talented AdventHealth physicians, clinicians and team members in the Greater Orlando area to join us. If you’re passionate about music and have collegiate-level training in orchestral instruments (strings, brass, woodwinds or percussion), we invite you to apply. We currently have openings for viola, cello and string bass.

Members of the orchestra will have the opportunity to play several concerts a year, either at special AdventHealth gatherings or community events. Fill out our brief application and our team will contact you about the audition process.


Where a Talent for Medicine Meets a Forte for Music

AdventHealth is home to some of the nation’s most brilliant medical minds — and our providers’ talents extend beyond the walls of our facilities. Bringing together the best of our musically talented team members and physicians in Greater Orlando, the AdventHealth Orchestra is the first of its kind in our nationwide health care system.

Our orchestra was born during the COVID-19 pandemic, when AdventHealth Director of Music and the Arts, Richard Hickam, sought to offer healing through music. He established our group with only string instruments: violin, viola, cello and double bass. After a resounding virtual performance at the 2022 Conference on Mission, it grew to a full orchestra with woodwinds, brass and percussion musicians. New ensembles were created following the first live full orchestra performance at the 2023 Conference on Mission.

More than just a creative outlet, the AdventHealth Orchestra offers team members the opportunity to reflect, bond and feel whole together through music.
