MYAC Students to Perform New Works by Turkish Composer

Umut Deniz Topcuoglu

MYAC orchestra and chamber members will perform the piano and chamber works of composer and musicologist Umut Deniz Topcuoglu on August 23 at 7 p.m. at the Turkish Consulate General in Chicago.

Topcuoglu, 27, is a graduate of the State Academy of Music, Theatre, and Fine Arts in Chisinau, Moldova. He has taught and performed Turkish music internationally and his music has been commissioned for stage productions in Europe.

Turkish Consul General Umut Acar recently invited Topcuoglu to present his new works in a special concert event in Chicago. MYAC was then selected to provide the instrumentalists for this special event. At the concert, Topcuoglu will also present a demonstration of his original notation system for the Turkish mouth harp, also known as the “temir komuz”.
