Classical music will float around the famous chimney rocks and historical valleys of the touristic Cappodocia region in central Turkey
Cappadocia, famous for its fairy chimneys, is hosting a classical music event.
Classical music will float around the famous chimney rocks and historical valleys of the touristic Cappodocia region in central Turkey and will feature 30 foreign and Turkish musicians performing at various acoustically exciting venues from July 9 - Aug. 21.
The “Klasik Keyifler” (Classical Pleasures) Festival, initiated by Ellen Jewett and her husband Hüsam Süleymangil, will bring together Ankara University soloists as well as professional musicians from Europe, Canada and the United States to perform chamber music and hold a music workshop.
“Cappadocia has been chosen for the acoustics of its historical places,” Süleymangil said. The area contains underground caves and churches as well as open-air venues situated in a canyon, where sound bounces off cliffs and resounds with long-lasting echoes.
The venues of the festival will be the Saruhan Caravanseria, Saklı (Hidden) Valley, Argoz Bezirhane, Ottoman Madrasah, Sarica Church and Gallery Cappadocia.
