Culture ministry to set up orchestra organization

The Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance is to establish an umbrella organization to include Tehran Symphony Orchestra and Iran's National Orchestra following their merger.

Speaking on the sidelines of one of Tehran orchestra rehearsals, Ali Moradkhani, the ministry's art director, said that it is to bring up an ensemble of musicians who can perform on different occasions.

'This way, we will have a group to deal with rather than individuals. Therefore, anybody who can cooperate in this project can join the group.'

He noted the idea will require further attention and focus before it can materialize.

Moradkhani lauded Tehran orchestra's progress, saying the ensemble's performance has improved a lot compared to what he had earlier seen.

'We are required to provide full support for the group's conductor, Ali Rahbari, to help him continue the same positive trend.'
