About the Show

“An Uncommon Journey” is a labour of love and massive undertaking by like-minded music educators and musicians to reconnect after two years, to share and learn and to make music together.

Over 50 musicians, some travelling from out-of-state, gathered weekly at klpac over a period of 13 weeks in this collaborative project. Musicians aged 16 to 22 worked closely with the more experienced klpac Symphonic Band members as well as its section leaders, distinguished local band directors and guest conductors to hone their craft and grow.

Now, they will be performing a heartwarming programme in “An Uncommon Journey” under the baton of three esteemed guest conductors – Ho Chee Kiang, Dr. Low Chee Meng, Mustaqim Abdullah.
