In a celebration of movement, colour and sound, five of Turkey’s most venerated traditional musicians will appear with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and members of the Brandenburg Choir building to a crescendo with the arrival of the mesmerising Whirling Dervishes. the arrival of the mesmerizing Whirling Dervishes.
