Show Info


Celebrate Turkic music and culture with Symphony of Voices from Turkic Lands ! Performed by the TURKSOY Symphony Orchestra, which is composed of 80 distinguished musicians from eight Turkic nations. The orchestra will be accompanied by the illustrious Jonathan Griffith Singers and conducted by Professor Rengim Gökmen.
The International Organization of Turkic Culture TURKSOY proudly presents the celebrated Turkish composer Ahmed Adnan Saygun's (1907-1991) magnum opus "Yunus Emre Oratorio". Turkish modes and folk melodies are both incorporated into Saygun's masterful oratorio, which was inspired by the thirteenth-century Turkish poet Yunus Emre. Yunus Emre's poetry frequently featured the themes of divine love, human destiny, and international humanism; these themes are echoed in the music of the oratorio.
