Devlet Çoksesli Korosu (Turkish State Choir) is the leading professional choral ensemble of Turkey. Since its foundation in 1988 by Prof. Hikmet Şimşek, the choir acts both as a strong symphonic choir and a refined a cappella ensemble. Past chief conductors include Walter Strauss and Ahter Destan. Every season the choir gives more than 30 concerts including symphonic concerts with the professional symphony orchestras of Turkey, a cappella programs and education concerts for youth and children. Awarded the ‘’Best Choral Ensemble in Turkey’’ in 2010, Devlet Çoksesli Korosu has been entitled ‘’Voices from Heaven’’ by music critics in Europe. Turkish State Choir has recorded many albums until now, and has commissioned many composers like Eurico Carrapatoso and Giovanni Bonato.
