Time: 8:30PM, 3:00PM
About the Show
What started as a labour of love to reconnect music educators and musicians after the pandemic has blossomed into a bigger movement involving a wider music community.
A project with a big heart and even bigger dreams, The klpac Symphonic Band’s outreach collaborative programme entitled An Uncommon Journey II returns with 48 talented musicians from Klang Valley, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Perak undergoing intensive training which will culminate in public concerts under the baton of Music Director Cheryl Mah and esteemed guest conductors – Joost Flach and Raja Muzafar Raja Abdullah. The concert will feature flute soloist Chew Sze Gee in conjunction with the Muramatsu flute’s 100th anniversary celebrations worldwide.
This truly international and varied programme takes music lovers through works by Dutch, Japanese, Austrian, Italian, American, Belgian and Italian composers as well as our very own pride and joy – arranger Wong Chee Yean with his lovely rendition of Rasa Sayang and composer Lim Yu-Yao’s Eternal Blossom Overture, making its world premiere at the concert.
An Uncommon Journey II is made possible thanks to CG Flute Academy, Muramatsu Flute Malaysia, Koje Reeds, The Band Store, UCSI University, Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO), Low Chee Meng (LCM Music), Wong Chee Yean and Lester Lim (Music Playground Singapore).
Age Limit: 5 years old and above.
