An SATB choir of 16 members, CorISTAnbul was formed by Arda Ardaşes Agoşyan and Natali Boğosyan in 2011 mainly to sing a cappella pieces in the music literature. Included in its repertoire are a variety of pieces from different periods, languages and styles. Our choir also gives accompanied concerts and shares its repertoire with the audience a few times a year with a consistently high level of musicality and performance.

The choir’s main objective is to contribute to the tradition of choral singing as opposed to operatic singing, thus covering for what we see as lacking in Turkey. It is then a kind of school for those not from the tradition of this kind of singing, and choristers are trained by our professional director in this fashion.

Among the choir’s aims are world premiering the pieces that the director arranges or composes for  a cappella choir or various instruments and that are the first of their kind (e.g., “Romeo and Juliet”: Concerto for double bass solo and choir), thus adding pieces to the music literature from Turkey. Agoşyan’s “Seven Songs on the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám” has been lauded by the audience from Turkey and abroad.

Yet another aim of the choir is Turkey premiering significant classical pieces in Turkey.

The always sings pieces in their original languages.
