So, it is a natural fit for World Surgical Foundation to collaborate with two renowned musicians to raise awareness and funding for the healing work WSF provides throughout the world.
Join us on Sunday, 15 September for a performance by Odin Rathnam and Robert Koenig. This exclusive concert is the WSF Key Event for 2019.

About The Musicians
Since his critically acclaimed Lincoln Center debut in 1993, violinist Odin Rathnam has established an international career of remarkable versatility and depth. As an orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber musician, he has received unanimous praise from audiences and critics for his “innate musicianship,” “brilliant technique” and “recalling the great violinists of past generations.” In 2011, he was the recipient of the DES Cultural Prize in Copenhagen, and made his debut as conductor and soloist with the Randers Chamber Orchestra, in three performances of Piazzolla’s and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
Odin Rathnam’s artistry, charisma, and passion are credited by many for leading the outstanding artistic development of the Harrisburg Symphony, where he served as concertmaster with distinction for 21 years. In 1995, he also created the critically acclaimed chamber ensemble, Concertante, with whom he performed and recorded for 7 years.
Pianist Robert Koenig has established a reputation as a much sought-after collaborative pianist and chamber musician. He performs regularly in major centers throughout the world with many of this generation’s most renowned musicians. Recent engagements have included performances at Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Louvre Museum in Paris, and Royal Festival Hall in London. He has performed with many of today’s leading artists including Sarah Chang, Hilary Hahn, Pamela Frank, Augustin Hadelich, Zuill Bailey, Sara Sant’Ambrogio, Roberto Diaz, Elmar Oliveira, Aaron Rosand, the Miro String Quartet, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. He is frequently heard on radio and television including ABC’s “Good Morning America” and CBS “This Morning.”

On Sunday, 7 October 2018, World Surgical Foundation volunteers arrived at the Fundación Hospital Leonardo Martínez Valenzuela to set up ORs and supply rooms as well as do final screening for approximately 200 patients to schedule them for surgery this week. Since this is our second time visiting the hospital, setup was not difficult with only a few tables needed for the main supply room and cleaning of another room for sutures, gloves, and other surgeons’ needs. A third room of anesthesia supplies was also stocked from the 25 medical bags brought by the Foundation for this surgical brigade.
Once screening was completed, Monday’s schedule was set with 15 general, 5 pediatric, 5 hand, and 5 OB/GYN surgeries for the day with 66 more general, 14 pediatric, 10 hand, and 20 OB/GYN surgeries to be performed during the 6-day brigade. WSF surgeons will be utilizing 6 of 7 ORs in the operating theater allowing us to complete as many surgeries as time allows by Friday. Check back here for more updates as the week progresses.
