The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) continues to stretch its versatility when it celebrates the music of legendary Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng on Saturday, 15 April 2023 at 8.30 pm at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP).
This concert is part of the MPOâ€™s 25th anniversary celebration and a testimony of its diverse artistry in presenting concerts of different genres such as classical, pop, jazz, traditional and contemporary. This is the MPOâ€™s ongoing initiatives to appease the varied music tastes for everyone.
Themed Teresa Teng Tribute Concert 70th Anniversary, this concert will pay homage to the renowned singer through her classic hits. Teng has recorded 1,700 songs and sold over 48 million albums. Her music has transcended borders, cultural and language barriers, and was recorded in various Chinese dialects, Japanese, Indonesian, Italian and English, allowing her music to reach a global audience. In 1986, she was named â€˜one of the greatest female singers in the worldâ€™ by Time magazine.
In this exclusive one-night-only concert, the MPO will be led by Francis Kan. The concert will feature vocalist Chen Jia who has spent a lifetime perfecting her tributes to Tengâ€™s works. Chenâ€™s excellent interpretation has led to her appointment as an official artist by the Teresa Teng Culture and Education Foundation.
Among the songs that will be presented by the MPO and Jia are Goodbye My Love, So Sweet, The Story of a Small Town, Star, Thousands of Words, May All Be Well and The Moon Represents My Heart, notably Tengâ€™s most celebrated song that has become iconic in the Chinese culture.
Do not miss this special tribute concert, one of the highlights of the MPOâ€™s 25th anniversary, only at DFP!
