Under the main sponsorship of the Presidential Symphony Orchestra (CSO), Doğuş Group will organize the 4th “Symphonic Nights on Campus” concert series at universities in the eastern and central Anatolian regions.

The aim of the project is to encourage the Anatolian youth to appreciate classical music. This year five concerts will be held in five cities between Oct. 22 and Oct.28. The CSO concerts will be organized in Yozgat, Nevşehir, Sivas and Malatya.

The concert series will start on Oct. 22 in Yozgat’s Bozok University and go to Nevşehir University on Oct. 23, Sivas Cumhuriyet University on Oct. 26 and Malatay İnönü University on Oct. 28. The concerts will start at 7:30 p.m.

The CSO, under the baton of conductor Rengim Gökmen, will accompany the world-renown pianist İdil Biret for the concerts in Yozgat and Nevşehir, and the world famous violin virtuoso Cihat Aşkın in the concerts in Sivas and Malatya.

The CSO will also be in Kayseri on Oct. 25 for a special concert to be attended by President Abdullah Gül. Biret and Aşkın will be together onstage during the concert, which will be held at the Merzifonlu Kara Mustafa Paşa Caravanserai under the auspices of the Kayseri Governor’s Office.
