Istanbul European Choir

Concert at St. Irene
Istanbul European Choir consists of 100 singers all coming from different professions, nationalities and religions. The only thing that kept them together for more than 30 years is their admiration of polyphonic music. The staff changes every year by new attendances and by the fact that some members have to return their home countries. However their amateur spirit, love for music and passion to sing better remain unchanged.

Istanbul European Choir was founded by a group of German people who lived in Istanbul, under the name of "Deutscher Singkreis" (German Association of Singing) in 1976. A group of French singers joined the Choir in 1991 and the name is changed to Istanbul European Choir. And afterwards, the choir got richer every year by joining of people from different nationalities.

The Istanbul European Choir had many conductors from different countries: Sylvenne Maire (France), Stephen Lomas (UK), Florian Mair (Austria), John Taylor (UK). Our current conductor is Mr. Burak Onur Erdem, who has bachelor in Political Science and a master of arts in Music Theory. He continues his doctoral studies on Coducting at ITU Center of Advanced Studies in Music. 

The main purpose of the foundation of Istanbul European Choir was to endear choral music and popularize great choral works. For this purpose, the repertoire often consisted of classical works. However, recently we have begun to diversify our repertoire with examples of works by popular foreign and Turkish composers . They also aim to add a new color to Istanbul's art life by choosing works that have never been performed in Turkey before.

IEC in 2014-2015
In September Istanbul European Choir is starting to have rehearsals like every other fall; with one difference this year: the rehearsal venue is no longer German Highschool but Teutonia instead due to the physical renovations of the high school building.

Istanbul European Choir is an amateur society. You don't need to deal with music professionally to join them. If you
- enjoy choral music and singing,
- have an adult voice,
- believe that you have a 'music ear',
- can read music,
you can join the rehearsals, no matter which voice group you belong to, or what nationality and profession you have.

The only thing you have to do is get through the auditions that take place right after the rehearsals on the first few weeks of each season. Rehearsals start at 19:00 and end at 21:30 each Tuesday. You can go and watch a rehearsal, and then try at the audition.

Rehearsal place: Teutonia, Galip Dede Cad. No. 85, Tünel
