With the founding of the Symphony Orchestra of India, in August 2006, under the auspices of the NCPA and Music Director, Marat Bisengaliev, the opportunities in western music for talented Indian musicians have increased by a wide margin. For those talented enough to play with the orchestra it is indeed an extraordinary experience in music making at an international level that is not replicated anywhere else in India. In the two orchestral seasons every year there is regular contact with musicians of an international calibre and the repertoire has expanded exponentially to include a diverse range of works from J.S. Bach to Richard Strauss and large productions from Puccini’s Madama Butterfly to Karl Jenkins’ Adiemus. Expanded western classical music offerings at the National Centre for the Performing Arts afford these musicians an opportunity to meet some of the world’s finest performers all year round.
