About Penang Chong Yee Chinese Music Centre

Penang Chong Yee Chinese Music Centre is one of the earliest Chinese traditional music academies established in Malaysia in the 1980s. The founder, Lai Ah Lai, PKT, PJK, PJM is a well-known Guzheng and Dizi player in Singapore and Malaysia and he is also an experienced Chinese traditional music teacher in Malaysia. Since Chong Yee Chinese Music Centre was founded, it has been organising and promoting any kinds of Chinese cultural music events besides teaching Chinese traditional instruments as their main goal. At the end of 2013, for the betterment of those events, the academy officially established its administration and event organising committee. Since then, the committee has organised numerous big and small events related to Chinese cultural art music. For example, the “Chong Yee Cup” series: National Chinese Orchestra Competition for high school students, solo chinese orchestra competitions, the Spring Festival Chinese Orchestra Competition and also the “Hua Yue Qing” series: Inter-School Concert, music sharing sessions, talks, performances with international musicians etc. All these events enable exchange between musical experiences, providing Chinese traditional music enthusiasts a platform to showcase and admire talents as well as passing down the culture of Chinese music as an objective.

Besides that, Chong Yee Chinese Music Centre has started many teaching classes to further improve the level of local Chinese traditional music education. One-to-one tutoring classes and big classes provide a platform for Chinese traditional music enthusiasts to learn as well as allowing all of them to understand the culture of Chinese music. In order to further develop traditional music education, Chong Yee Chinese Music Centre officially established Chong Yee Music Academy in 2012. The academy had recently been invited by NUS Center for the Arts department and Confucius Institute NTU SIngapore to become an overseas examination consultant and administrator for Chinese music, not only allowing local Chinese traditional music learners to further their education abroad but also hoping that more courses related to traditional music and be promoted in the future.

About Penang Chong Yee Chinese Orchestra

Penang Chong Yee Chinese Orchestra used to be the chinese orchestra under Chong Yee Chinese Music Centre and was officially registered as Penang Chong Yee Chinese Orchestra in 2019 as a non-profit performing art organisation. The organisation has two separate entities working together which is the administration team and the orchestra, both being led by the chairman and artistic director, Lai Ah Lai PKT, PJK, PJM. The orchestra has also invited the current concert master of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra: Li Bao Shun, Huqin player: Chew Keng How, Flautist: Lim Sin Yeo as the orchestra’s overseas consultant.

PCYCO has gathered teachers who had graduated from professional universities abroad and local Chinese music experts. Its objectives include passing down Chinese culture, educating musicians and promoting the culture of Chinese traditional music. In order for the different local ethnicities to be closer to Chinese music and feel its charisma, PCYCO actively recruits committees and orchestra players with hopes to benefit and exert Malaysia’s diversification of culture.

PCYCO has organised and produced a series of events for the past few years such as concerts, competitions, talks regarding art, international exchange etc. Previously, PCYCO had collaborated with famous overseas Chinese orchestra musicians who gathered in Penang and performed two “Gather in Nanyang'' concerts, establishing cultural connections between Malaysia and other countries. With hopes to maintain the organisation’s agenda despite the strike of COVID-19 in 2020, PCYCO organised its first online national competition, namely “Chong Yee Cup 2021 - Melodious Reflection”. The competition received enthusiastic response nationwide, stirring up the passion for traditional culture and musical instruments as well as gaining recognition from the public. 

PCYCO is gradually becoming a semi-professional orchestra. It has attracted attention and support from the Penang government as well as local art communities. Hopefully in the near future, PCYCO will become one of the best cultural organisations in Malaysia.
