The Bodrum Chamber Orchestra, which was founded four years ago in the Aegean province of Muğla, has been invited to an international festival for the first time. The orchestra will join the International Classical Music Festival in South Korea in September with 24 musicians and is now looking for a sponsor.
The orchestra was founded under the leadership of the İzmir State Symphonic Orchestra artist Numan Pekdemir, and they have so far performed many concerts. They are set to give seven concerts in different cities, including Seoul, Sungnam, Daejeon, Hamon, Busan and Changwon as part of the festival that will be joined by orchestras from 50 countries between Sept. 17 and 26.
Pekdemir said the event was very important since it was a first for the orchestra and said, “We know the people of South Korea have sympathy for Turkish people. We will have the opportunity to promote our orchestra and the cultural values of Turkey. But our biggest problem is finding a sponsor. We expect financial and spiritual support from the Bodrum Chamber of Commerce and Bodrum municipalities,” she said.
