Summer 2024: Yağmur Soydemir
at Mission Hill Arts Festival

The Yard at the Tobin Community Center

Presented in collaboration with Mission Hill Arts Festival, as part of the Summer 2024 Festival: Elements.

“Weaving worlds and evoking feelings for audiences in the crowd has been my cherished privilege, a source of true honor.”
– Yağmur Soydemir

Classically-trained and multi-award winner Yağmur Soydemir is a flutist, composer, arranger, educator, and humanitarian activist from Turkey, who celebrates and honors every moment and experience life offers.

With her compelling music, she elegantly blends her culturally-rooted Turkish musical traditions, classical music, and contemporary influences from jazz and fusion. Music is Soydemir's playground: she is a master of exploring and representing a composer’s imagination while performing, and discovering new visions, options, and colors while arranging music. 

In February 2023, following the serious earthquakes in Türkiye, she organized a relief project in support of the earthquake victims. The project, co-produced with Berklee professor Kemal Oksal, took a traditional Turkish folk song and arranged it for orchestra, choir, vocal soloists, and ethnic instruments. It was later recorded and released in collaboration with Berklee Productions.

Several of her compositions are in the recording phase, while her orchestral arrangements are performed live worldwide.
