Joining them from Istanbul, Turkey are the Sema Whirling Dervish Dancers led by Master Tambur player Ahmet Benli and supported by our own Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts Dance Graduates. The Melbourne Ottoman Mehter Military Band is joined with the energetic and talented Fremantle Symphony Orchestra and the University of Western Australia Choral Society, conducted by Chris Van Tuinen.
