Looking Back on the World Symposium on Choral Music 2023
Published: May 31,2023

I believe we organised this year's World Symposium on Choral Music and hosted our guests from all around the world in the best way we can. We were especially happy to hear the feedback that this event changed all of our guests' horizons, with its rich programme, the quality of the choirs, presenters' inspiring talks, with all concert halls being full and so much more. We created a huge interest in choral music in Türkiye and also I think we surprised the world in a positive way.
