Be part of an exciting musical offering when the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) presents Family Fun Day concerts on Sunday, 15 September 2019 at 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP), KLCC.
Themed Alasdair Malloy’s Symphonic Safari, these concerts will feature none other than presenter Alasdair Malloy who is a familiar face to the DFP audience. Besides the MPO, he is a regular guest with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony, Opera North, Dublin’s RTE Orchestra and London Mozart Players. A glass harmonic specialist, he has showcased his amazing talent in the USA, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Amsterdam and Monte Carlo.
The programme is all about the animals from a safari, from cats and dogs to elephants and bears, presented via a symphonic repertoire that will delight audiences young and old. It includes Anderson’s The Waltzing Cat, Gershwin’s Walking the Dog, Strauss’ The Dragonfly and The Cuckoo Polka, Saint-Saens’ The Elephant, Elgar’s The Wild Bears, Scott’s The Penguin and Rimsky-Korsakov’s famed Flight of the Bumble Bee.
Associate Conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), Michael Seal will lead the MPO and Malloy to steer magic in these family-themed concerts. He has conducted many of the UK’s finest orchestras such as the BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Philharmonic as well as the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Internationally, he has conducted the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra and Norwegian Radio Orchestra. His love of opera led to critically acclaimed performances of Puccini’s Il Trittico at the Birmingham Conservatoire. A champion of lesser-known British composers, he enjoys programming interesting repertoire and exploring connections between composers.
