From Jazzed-Up Chopin to Turkish Shakespeare: February at the Bilkent Concert Hall

The Bilkent Symphony Orchestra is opening the second half of its 2004-2005 concert season with a February program schedule not to be missed. In addition to the BSO's regular schedule of concerts, February programs include jazz, youth and benefit concerts, and a special presentation by Prof. Yıldız Kenter and Prof. Talat Halman.
The BSO started the month with a concert on Saturday, February 5, conducted by Music Director Emil Tabakov and featuring mezzo-soprano Martina Tomcic. The program featured the “Alpine Symphony” by
R. Strauss and G. Mahler’s “Kindertotenlieder.”
The next concert, on Thursday, February 10, will be a benefit performance, with proceeds going to the disaster victims in South Asia. The concert, entitled “Shakespeare Çağı,” is being organized by the Bilkent Student Council and the Education Club, in cooperation with the Turkish National Committee for UNICEF. It will take place at 8 p.m. at the Bilkent Concert Hall, and the program will include Prof. Yıldız Kenter's and Prof. Talat Halman's presentation, “Turkish Shakespeare.”

TDP Activities for the New Semester

TDP (Toplumsal Duyarlılık Projeleri) is ready for the new semester. Most of us know TDP through its support of the Gönüllü Eğitim Projesi (GEP), which provides education for underprivileged children. TDP organizes the participation of Bilkent students who volunteer to teach these children. GEP can be supported not only by volunteering, but also by donating books and clothing. GEP will start again during the first week of school.

Another important TDP project, GÖREP (Görme Engelliler Eğitim Projesi), resumed on February 5 for visually impaired students, some of whom are now preparing for the ÖSS (University Entrance Examination). GÖREP (a group assisting the visually impaired) has reported that Bilkent volunteers devoted 40 hours of work to this project last semester. The aim is to increase the total this term.
A new activity being organized by Bilkenters for GÖREP students, theater classes, began on February 6. In addition, a jazz concert to benefit GÖREP is being planned for March, with the help of the Uygar Görme Engelliler Derneği. The concert will take place at the Bilkent Concert Hall.
