The young musicians of the Orchestra attended a three-week training camp during August 15–September 6 at Sabanci University under the leadership of Cem Mansur and master instructors who tutor various groups of instruments.   

 

Young Musicians and Children with Special Needs Joined Under the Common Rhythm of Music

As part of the social program, the “Awareness Meeting” brought together members of the Orchestra with children with special needs who undergo rehabilitation within the scope of the Turkish Spastic Children Foundation. At the meeting, Psychological Consultants conducted an empathy workshop with the orchestra members around the topics of “Disability” and “What is Cerebral Palsy?”.

 

In the final stage of the meeting whereby the orchestra members and children from the Turkish Spastic Children Foundation became aware of their differences, young musicians performed a mini concert for the children introducing all the instruments one by one.
