Malaysians are very lucky to be blessed with so many wonderful things. Except for the occasional riots and demonstrations, there has been no life-threatening wars or genocide after World War II. Though the country was also affected by the downturn of the economy back in the 80s, most people still had jobs and enough funds to support their family. Children grew up playing together with their friends of all races, and it has become second nature for us to visit our friends during festive occasions such as Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri or even Deepavali.
Dewan Filharmonik Petronas will present a brand new musical concoction that is inspired by life in Malaysia. Entitled ‘MPO’s Native Foray’, this musical will be led by Marques Young, the Co-Principal Trombone of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. The ensemble will perform original music inspired by P. Ramlee, Sheila Majid, Fela Kuti, Siti Nurhaliza, Ibrahim Ferrer and James Brown.
Performances are scheduled to start at 8.30 pm on 29th October 2011. Tickets are priced at RM 58 for all seats. Early birds will be entitled to purchase these tickets at RM 48 (limited to the first 100 tickets sold). Patrons who are attending the function are required to be in smart casual dress code.
