This concert, which holds a special significance for the TEV Family, fills me with great excitement as it marks the first time we are presenting the Chamber Orchestra comprised of TEV graduates in the field of arts, along with our volunteer musicians and soloists. This evening holds a different meaning for me personally. Since becoming a part of the TEV Family, my greatest dream has been to establish a large orchestra consisting of TEV art graduates. Today, thanks to my TEV friends, our talented graduate artists, and volunteer musicians, I am proud to see this dream come true. As the initiator of this project and the Chairman of the TEV Board, I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to everyone who has contributed to making my dream a reality and, in doing so, contributed to the arts.”
