Adarsh Kumar received his Bachelor of Music in Classical Trombone Performance in 2013 from the Juilliard School under the instruction of Joseph Alessi.  His performances include many orchestral concerts under renowned conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Robert Spano, David Effron and James DePriest.  From 2011-2013, as the tenor trombonist of the Quo Vadis Brass Quintet, he received extensive chamber music instruction from the members of the American Brass Quintet, giving recitals at Juilliard, the Aspen Summer Music Festival, and in Sacramento, CA.  As a young musician, he also performed in the Houston Youth Symphony and Greater Houston Youth Orchestra, which informs his experience as an orchestra manager today.  An active freelancer and teacher in New York City, he is also passionate about writing, and currently works as a writing tutor at the Juilliard School.



THE DOCTORS ORCHESTRAL SOCIETY OF NEW YORK is celebrating its 77th Anniversary Season. It was founded in 1938 by physicians interested in performing symphonic music. In recent years it has added community musicians representing the diverse professions in the metropolitan area. The Doctors Orchestra performs four to six concerts annually, often donating its services for benefits. Depending on the music, the orchestra performs concerts with between 50 and 60 members. The orchestra has performed in New York’s major concert halls including Carnegie Hall, Town Hall and Avery Fisher Hall.
Our concerts are free for all the public to enjoy and the orchestra is able to keep the music playing by your generous donations.  Your donation will greatly contribute to further the development of our organization.   We are a non-profit organization with a 501(c)3 tax exempt status.
