The Chamber Singers recently returned from Turkey and their sixth international cultural exchange tour. The trip included shared concerts with university choirs at Middle East Technical, Anadolu, and Bogazici universities, discussions on cultural and political issues with students at those schools. They learned six pieces from the Turkish choral repertoire they performed with their peers in Turkey and prepared for the trip with lecture discussions led by several guest speakers on various aspects of Turkish history and culture, including a special visit from ethnomusicologist John Morgan O'Connell from the University of Cardiff, Wales, a leading authority on Turkish vocal music and the changes it has undergone since the Kemalist revolution of the 1920's.
