Bilkent Youth Symphony Orchestra
The focus is on Turkey for the third year of "Beethoven ile buluşma – Encounter with Beethoven": at the Orchestra Campus organized by Deutsche Welle and Beethovenfest Bonn, the guests are the young musicians of the Bilkent Youth Symphony Orchestra from the prestigious private Bilkent University in Ankara. The climax of their weeklong stay is the concert (23 SEP 2014) in the Beethovenhalle. On the programme is Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, the vocal passages being sung by Turkish and German soloists and a choir from Bonn – a project emphatically devoted to mutual acquaintanceship and friendly exchange.
The patron of the Campus Project is the German Foreign Minister, Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Sponsored by RWE, the German Foreign Ministry and the North Rhine Westphalia State Ministry of the Family, Children, Young People, Culture and Sport.
