Borusan Center for Culture and Arts

Borusan Sanat, the driving force behind the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra, was founded by Borusan Holding, one of the leading industrial conglomerates of Turkey and a keen supporter of the arts since its foundation, which has always endeavored to contribute to Turkey’s modernization process. Assuming that each value created by a person or institution translates into a contribution to the nation’s economic and social growth, the Holding laid the foundation for an arts institution for the advancement and sustainability of its appreciation of art. Thus came Borusan Sanat into existence in 1997.

Placing the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra (BIPO) at the core of its activities, Borusan Sanat organizes the monthly regular concerts of the orchestra as well as those of the Borusan Quartet, formed of BIPO’s group leaders. The Borusan Children’s Choir is another meaningful initiative commenced in 2002 to foster the love for classical music in children. Borusan Virtuosi is the latest fruit of the ensemble formed of its section leaders. They perform on special occasions. Meanwhile, Borusan Sanat donated its entire Music Library, which served the public in its previous headquarters, to Istanbul Technical University’s Center for Advanced Studies in Music (MIAM) to reach a wider audience.
