first the marching band, now the mehteran
After their marching band, Fethiye Municipality is now assembling Mehteran, the Janissary Band. No matter what some people say, Fethiye Mayor Behçet Saatçi has a great performance of success. Fethiye is the only municipality in Muğla with a perfect marching band, and now a Mehteran is on the way. In his press statement, Fethiye Municipality Cultural Center Director Muammer Şahin said that they were on the last stage in the assembly of the Mehteran.
Muammer Şahi said “We always endeavored to achieve success in our projects by including our children in them. Children of Fethiye are highly successful in several projects. We decided to do it with our own children and announced our marching project. Thanks to them, we had many applications. It is their second year with the marching band and they are doing great. Hopefully, we will add a Mehteran to our marching band very soon. Therefore, our municipality will be performing various shows both in and out of our own town. Let me add that our marching band will attend Milas Independence Day festivities on September 14. Then we take part in various exhibitions in various provinces representing Fethiye. I am due to thank especially our Mayor, our teacher Mehmet and everyone who participated in this project.”
