3rd Turkish Music Days: A Celebration of Turkish Music

The "3rd Turkish Music Days" event organized by Necmettin Erbakan University (NEÜ) State Conservatory of Turkish Music started with the "Âşık Veysel Memorial Concert". Throughout the event, which will conclude on Friday, June 2nd, a concert will be performed each day featuring different repertoires.

 

In the opening program held at NEÜ Ahmet Keleşoğlu Faculty of Theology Nezahat Keleşoğlu Conference Hall, the first person to take the stage was Prof. Dr. Mehmet Gönül, the Director of NEÜ State Conservatory of Turkish Music. He expressed his gratitude to everyone who attended the event in person and those who followed the program through screens.

 

Prof. Dr. Cem Zorlu, who explained their intention to promote the concept of music therapy, stated, "In this significant matter, we have initiated serious work with a commission that includes both the conservatory and medical professionals. We will implement this project in Konya, and with its historical position and expertise, Konya will become an actual center for music therapy. Hopefully, we will see the results within a few years and promote it to the entire world from Konya."

 

 

Following the speeches, the performance of the “If There Was No Love” concert began. The program, which featured 15 special compositions depicting Âşık Veysel, received great admiration from the music enthusiasts in attendance.

 

The "3rd Turkish Music Days" concerts, which will start every day at 20:30, will conclude with the “Nev-bahâr; Kürdîlihicazkâr Faslı” concert on Friday, June 2nd.

 

Music lovers can also follow the event live on the Necmettin Erbakan University YouTube channel, which took place at NEÜ Ahmet Keleşoğlu Faculty of Theology Nezahat Keleşoğlu Conference Hall.
