Choir of Turkish miners take stage for first time

Turkey’s first choir consisting solely of miners took the stage for the first time on Dec. 4 in the Black Sea province of Zonguldak to mark International Miners’ Day.

A group of 27 miners performed their first concert at Bülent Ecevit University’s (BEÜ) Sezai Karkoç Cultural Center following six months of rehersals.

The concert was attended by Zonguldak Governor Erdoğan Bektaş, BEÜ Rector Mustafa Çufalı, Turkish Coal Cooperation Vice President Ercan Gebeş, the miners’ friends and relatives, academics and students.
