The TCS Turkish Choir Appreciation Night on August 16th, at the VanDusen Botanical Garden Floral Hall was a successful music and community event.

We would like to thank our cheerful and supportive audience, Lara Cuisine and SEBECUM International and our valued sponsor Aldila Boutique. Also, special thanks to Mrs. Ceyda Gultan who lent her car to be used for pickup/return tasks for the Choir Night preparations.

Thanks to Murat Kayalak for joining us with his baglama (saz); and to Defne Corbacioglu for the stage background poster, “Turkiye, where East meets West” (which was designed for TCS, in 2011).

Our choir worked hard to make this event happen. Besides their efforts during the choir practices, they also demonstrated successful team work just before the event (setting up tables and hall decoration). Congratulations to all!

In addition to their choir member roles, Mark Hamilton took care of the stage sound system and Yesare Sonay welcomed our guests at the entrance door.

Our choir members Ozge Goktepe and Yesare Sonay, spent extra practice hours with the ‘baglama’ to make the “turku” part of the program happen. Many thanks for this effort! Also, we are grateful to Musiki Parea for the pieces they sang for us.  And the surprise of the night was Erman Yavuz (guitar) and Lisa Ronald (wind instruments) playing together. They sounded great. Thank you both!

There is no way to pronounce our appreciation to our beloved conductor, Sevgi Dogan.  She did a great job throughout the practices and during the performance on August 16th.

There were also many volunteers (some with assigned tasks, some arriving to give a hand for the décor/set up of the hall) to be acknowledged. A list of these friends has been provided above, in the Turkish section of this document.

As long as our love for Turkish music continues and is shared in the community, we will celebrate many more Turkish music events together, in Vancouver and the surroundings.
