Gülsin Onay to give charity concert in Istanbul
The Istanbul Aid Orchestra and well-known Turkish pianist Gülsin Onay will be on stage on Jan. 7 during “Mozart Night,” organized by the Darüşşafaka Association at the Fulya Art Center.
The Istanbul Aid Orchestra is a volunteer orchestra founded in January 2017 with some of the most experienced orchestral musicians in the city.
The orchestra donated the income of its first concert to the Istanbul representative of the Animal Rights Federation (HAYTAP), and the income of its next concert will be donated to the Darüşşafaka Association, which focuses on educating orphans in Turkey.
Onay, who is a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF and who has taken the stage in many charity concerts, will perform Mozart’s 9th Piano Concerto, known as “Jeunehomme,” at the concert.
The concert will be conducted Murat Cem Orhan, the Istanbul Aid Orchestra’s award-winning composer and conductor.
Tickets for the concert, which will start at 8 p.m., can be found via Biletix.
