World famous Symphony Orchestra to perform in Istanbul

The world famous Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela will be in Istanbul for two concerts next week.

Leading the Orchestra will be Gustavo Dudamel, a famous conductor who is world-renown for his skills in music.

The concerts are due to take place on August 8th and August 9th at the Halic Congress Center in Sutluce and will start at 8:30pm. Tickets range from 25 Turkish Liras for students, to up to 300 Turkish Liras for the best seats for the show.

There will also be more than just the concerts. Jose Antonio Abreu, the founder of El Sistema, a publicly financed music education system in Venezuela in which the conductor Dudamel studied, will also hold some debates as to give advice on how Turkey could set up a similar program to help the development of young musicians.

Istanbul recently held the successful Istanbul Jazz Festival, and the city will be hoping that the concerts prove to be a similar success to the Jazz Festival.
