Campus 2002
Turkey

During the Beethoven Festival 2002, a one-week campus took place for the first time in the framework of which the guest orchestra had the chance to work with notable conductors during their stay in Bonn. Invitee was the National Conservatory of Istanbul which was established in 1917 under the name of “Darül Elhan” (House of Melody). It belongs to the most important institutions of culture that the young Turkish state took over after the Ottoman period. 1925 the House of Melody was reopened as “The National Conservatory”. In 1986 it became part of Istanbul University. With around 780 students, The National Conservatory is one of the biggest and most important conservatories in southeast Europe. Among the graduates are well known artists such as Leyla Gencer, Güher and Süher Pekinel, Cemal Resit Rey and the Grammy winning Aydin Esen.
In 1996, Professor Ramiz Malik-Aslanov became the conductor of the orchestra.

The Campus 2002 stood under the patronage of His Excellency the Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey in the Republic of Germany, Osman Taney Korutürk.
