Benefit concert for Doctors Without Borders JAZZMED feat. Otto Lechner (A)

Music or medicine? Medicine AND music: all members of the JAZZMED group made this decision independently of each other. In addition to their musical kinship, they were brought together by the desire to make a contribution to society through their music. This is done by placing the concerts of JAZZMED in the service of non-profit organizations or projects.

The net proceeds of the concert will go to "Doctors Without Borders", a private international medical organization that provides direct aid to victims of disasters and conflicts. This is the best opportunity to enjoy music at the highest level and to do good for "Doctors without Borders".
