Magic in Music, was indeed another great performance, by Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) in Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP), Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC

If you’d like to bring your little one, to experience orchestra, Family Fun Day is just superb to start them, fostering the interest in classical music. It’s amazing how they present orchestra music in such a fun way that everyone, even the children are easier to accept and appreciate the music!

As usual, everyone needs to wear formal: no slippers, no scandals, no jeans, no denim, no shorts, no collarless t-shirts, no singlets, no sneakers and no sports attire. It’s indeed very nice, to see everyone is in their best clothes, looking casually elegant. We’re not allowed to use our cameras, video cameras. Even handphones are prohibited. So, strictly no photography in the hall.

Punctuality is very important. Please be there 15 minutes earlier as late comers will be denied to go in until the next interval period even you have the tickets to go in. As Magic in Music doesn’t have any interval between the whole sessions, you might really miss the whole show if you’re late even 1 minute. The reasons of setting all these rules are just to ensure, each and everyone inside the hall, will enjoy all the music performed, with maximum pleasure!
