I Wish That An Instrument Sound Came Out of Every House in Fatih
Fatih Demir, Fatih Mayor, who mentioned that they are proud of being deemed worthy of an award in the Carrousel Municipalism Awards where a large number of projects were evaluated, told: “Our artists, who deserve the gratitude, are here. Our goal is to create a music class in every school in Fatih within the scope of the One Orchestra For Each School Project, and to support at least 25 students in these classes both with instruments and instructors. Our main goal is to educate as many children as possible to establish a room orchestra in each school. It has been done in 25 schools so far. Our goal is to put this work into practice in all schools. I see the extraordinary effort of students, and they run this effort along with their school studies. I wish that an instrument sound came out of every house in Fatih. If Allah permits, we will also realize it.”
