Last month (June), AMA President, Dr Chris Zappala, chose QMO as the recipient of the President's Award for 2017, in recognition of QMO's work towards charities, the opportunites it provided for the medical community, as well as celebrating the spirit of QMO.
Since 2010, QMO with members in both the orchestra and choir, has raised over $75,000 for charities. All our members, from performers, administrators, staging support to front of house ushers, have always been unpaid volunteers, donating their time out of their busy clinical schedules to put on amazing concert events that raises funds for local charities. It is also through these concerts, that we help to raise awareness of important, pertinent issues within our community.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members of the past and present, for donating their time, effort and talent. We are deeply grateful also to our sponsors, silent donors and QMO Friends who have provided incredible financial support to facilitate QMO's work. Last, but not least, we sincerely thank all our fans, and audiences who have attended our concerts and supported our events, without whom we would not have had the opportunity to express our love for music, and at the same time, raise money for charity.
QMO is proud to receive the AMA President's Award on behalf of all our members, supporters and fans.
