A multicultural orchestra from Turkey with over 60 musicians from 22 countries and one region will perform on March 20 and 21 in Tokyo as part of events celebrating the extended 2003 Year of Turkey in Japan.
The Tefken Black Sea Philharmonic Orchestra, originally formed in 1992, is unique in that it is comprised of a variety of musicians who hail from different areas but collectively perform with their own national music instruments.
The coming performances will feature six soloists from Turkey, Azerbaijan and Georgia who play ethnological instruments.
The shows will start at 6:30 p.m. at Bunkyo Civic Hall, near Kasuga Station on the Mita and Oedo subway lines. Tickets are 7,000 yen, 5,000 yen and 3,000 yen, and can be ordered by calling 0570-02-9999 or (03) 5237-9966.
