This week a Mayo Clinic Orthopedic Surgeon is in Israel making memories and beautiful music with his oboe. Dr. Allen Bishop's week-long trip is near and dear to his heart. The surgeon is playing in a concert KIMT LOGOhosted by the World Doctor's Orchestra. For more than three decades Bishop has strolled the halls at Mayo Clinic and for ten of those years he has been a member of the World Doctor's Orchestra. The organization boasts a roster of 300 skilled musicians. "They're all physicians. They come from 40 different countries from around the world," explained Dr. Bishop.

Reach: KIMT 3 serves the Mason City-Austin-Albert Lea-Rochester market.
