PATRON This new 2017/18 Season of the MPO marks another important milestone, as we celebrate the MPO’s 20th Anniversary Season. I would like to thank the MPO for enriching our lives with its wonderful and inspiring performances over the years. The MPO have been such an important part of our culture, presenting world class classical music and creating an alternative entertainment for Malaysians. Despite its young age, the MPO has impressed Malaysians and the international community with its excellent musicianship and artistry. With the launch of the new Season, I am confident that the MPO will continue to deliver beautiful and timeless world-class performances through their special line-up of internationally renowned artists and conductors. I am particularly excited to note that Tengku Ahmad Irfan will be making his Malaysian conducting debut with the MPYO in its 10th anniversary concert. More importantly, the MPO has contributed to the public through its various activities under the MPO Education & Outreach Programme and have done well in promoting and nurturing our talented young musicians through the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (MPYO). My heartfelt thanks to PETRONAS, sponsors and our wonderful audiences; together, you have enabled the MPO to showcase their talent and virtuosity, while at the same time, inspiring and enriching the lives of those we touch. Please join me to congratulate the MPO for its 20 years of success and its commitment to promote and cultivate the appreciation of classical music in Malaysia.

The MPYO celebrates its 10th Anniversary this season with several events, among them an anniversary concert on its founding date, and a concert on which Tengku Irfan makes his conducting debut with the MPYO. This celebration of music is made possible with the unwavering support of our beloved Patron, YABhg Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Bt Haji Mohd Ali and of course our main donor PETRONAS, valuable sponsors, loyal subscribers, partners, as well as our ardent supporters and wonderful audiences.

Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP) is home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) and is Malaysia’s first concert hall dedicated to classical music. Located at the PETRONAS Twin Towers, it was officially opened on 17th August 1998 by the patron of the MPO, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Haji Mohd Ali and former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. Designed by Cesar Pelli, the hall takes its inspiration from the traditional shoe-box shape of the great 19th century European concert halls with the magnificent Klais Pipe Organ providing a spectacular backdrop to the hall’s stage. The hall contains 920 seats, including box seats, corporate suites and a royal suite. Acoustics experts Kirkegaard and Associates have incorporated unique acoustical devices into its design to maximize the hall’s natural qualities. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2018, DFP plays an integral part in the music and cultural landscape of Malaysia and the city of Kuala Lumpur. It continues to enthrall listeners as it has done since the day it first opened its doors. In addition to stimulating and enriching concerts by the MPO, world renowned orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, BBC Symphony and Vienna Symphony have performed in this hall.

Beyond classical music, DFP has hosted prominent ensembles of other music genres such as the Count Basie Orchestra, Yellowjackets, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Mezzoforte, Pink Martini and Gotan Project. International stars that have graced the stage include Harry Connick Jr., Anoushka Shankar, Laura Fygi, Zakir Hussain, Larry Carlton and Diana Krall. Renowned Malaysian artists including SM Salim, Sheila Majid, M Nasir, Siti Nurhaliza, Jamal Abdillah, Ramli Ibrahim, Khadijah Ibrahim, Ella, Yuna, Aizat, Hafiz, Najwa and Dayang Nurfaizah have mesmerised audiences at DFP.

Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) gave its inaugural performance at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP) on 17th August 1998. The MPO today comprises musicians from 24 countries, including 7 from Malaysia, a remarkable example of harmony among different cultures and nationalities. A host of internationally-acclaimed musicians has worked with the MPO, including Lorin Maazel, Sir Neville Marriner, Yehudi Menuhin, Joshua Bell, Harry Connick Jr., JosĂŠ Carreras, Andrea Bocelli and Branford Marsalis, many of whom have praised the MPO for its fine musical qualities and vitality. With each new season, the MPO continues to present a varied programme of orchestral music drawn from over three centuries, as well as the crowd-pleasing concert series. Its versatility transcends genres, from classical masterpieces to film music, pop, jazz, contemporary and commissioned works. The MPO regularly performs at major cities of Malaysia. Internationally, it has showcased its virtuosity to audiences in Singapore (1999, 2001 and 2005), Korea (2001), Australia (2004), China (2006), Taiwan (2007), Japan (2001 and 2009) and Vietnam (2013). Its Education and Outreach Programme, ENCOUNTER, reaches beyond the concert platform to develop musical awareness,

appreciation and skills through dedicated activities that include instrumental lessons, workshops and school concerts. ENCOUNTER also presents memorable events in such diverse venues as orphanages, hospitals, rehabilitation centres and community centres. The MPO’s commitment to furthering musical interest in the nation led to the creation of the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (MPYO). It gave its inaugural concert at DFP on 25 August 2007, followed by a tour in Peninsular Malaysia. It has performed in Sabah and Sarawak (2008), Singapore (2009) and Brisbane, Australia (2012). As it celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2018, the MPO remains steadfast in its mission to share the depth, power and beauty of great music. The MPO’s main benefactor is PETRONAS and its patron is Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Haji Mohd Ali.
