Mete Gökçe

Academician Chorus Chef
He was born in 1975 in Ankara. The semester of elementary, middle, high school and university was quite emotional and turned him into a closed person. Music has become a structure that reaches the spirit of every time in these times. This led to music education after high school. He met "Choir Music" in Gazi music years. The polyphonic chorus seemed to make a timeless journey through the tunes. The choir was a change of himself. There was now a passion between that time and that time: "Chorus music". The child who was trapped now became worn out and began to show the existence of life. One day his teacher recognized his chorus love and chorus ability and directed him. The timeless soul has gained a time now. He was enthusiastically wrapped in chorus music.
