Join a fun-filled musical splendour when the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) presents Family Fun Day concerts on Sunday, 10 September 2017 at 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP), KLCC.

Themed The Listener, the MPO will present much loved works such as Britten’s A Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, popularly used for music education to demonstrate the tone colours and capacities of the various sections of the ensemble. Also included in the repertoire list is ‘Polka’ from Shostakovich’s The Age of Gold Suite and Smetana’s The Bartered Bride Overture, one of the earliest examples of national Czech music.

Music from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone will definitely enthrall the audience, young and old. The mystical and magical theme, written by John Williams, truly represents the essence of the 2001 blockbuster.

The MPO will also perform music from famous operas such as Bizet’s Carmen and Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

The concerts will present Magic Mime Circle, regarded as one of today’s premiere family attractions with its imaginative and innovative content. It has entertained audiences in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong, through music festivals and showcases with major orchestras. The group is a creative partnership of Maggie Petersen and Douglas MacIntyre who have backgrounds in theatre and instrumental music.
