In the summer of 2009 Greek and Turkish musicians reunited once again with great enthusiasm. The American College of Greece hosted the Turkish musicians and offered its premises for rehearsals and the first concert performance. The orchestra then travelled to Katerini where it performed at the Dion Theater. The tour continued to Kavala where the concert at the impressive castle, unfolded as a magically fueled event.
World famous, 26 year old violinist Ilya Gringolts was the soloist on this tour and performed the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto alongside the orchestra. The orchestra also performed Mozart’s Overture to the Marriage of Figaro and Beethoven’s 7th Symphony, and was conducted in alternance by Isin Metin and Anastasios Symeonidis.
