Bodrum Orchestra goes to Seoul

BODRUM - Doğan News Agency
The Bodrum Chamber Orchestra has left for South Korea to attend the International Hamon Classical Music Festival.

The orchestra was formed four years ago under the leadership of İzmir State Symphony Orchestra artist Numan Pekdemir in the Aegean province of Muğla’s Bodrum town. They are scheduled to join the international festival, which kicked off yesterday and will continue until Sept. 26. Nearly 50 countries are participating in the festival in South Korea this year.

South Korea Musical Organization Executive Board Chairman Sang Joon welcomed the Turkish orchestra, comprised of Culture Ministry Fine Arts General Directorate Performance Arts Director Berrin Kavlak, Art Coordinator Pekdemir, Orchestra Chief Betin Günelş and 19 musicians.

An invitation from an international festival was very important for the chamber orchestra, Pekdemir said. “We will have the chance to promote works by Turkish artists as well as the natural wonders of Turkey and Bodrum,” Pekdemir said.

The orchestra is set to give seven concerts in different cities, including Seoul, Sungnam, Daejeon, Hamon, Busan and Changwon as part of the festival.
