Come and be part of adventurous musical offerings when the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) presents Family Fun Day concerts on Sunday, 24 November 2019 at 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP), KLCC.

The MPO will collaborate with Platypus Theatre in these concerts. Since 1989, the group has introduced classical music to almost one million young audiences. The group has established itself as one of North America’s premiere music education theatre companies with 650 performances with more than 75 orchestras worldwide.

Having performed with the MPO in similar family-themed concerts at DFP, the group is back with Emily Saves the Orchestra. The concerts revolve around an evil monster, threatening the world with darkness and noise. Emily, together with the MPO, plans to destroy it with the beautiful music of Beethoven, Rossini and Tchaikovsky.

Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker is one of the composer’s most loved ballets. The MPO opens the concerts with one of its dances, Trepak, based on a traditional Russian and Ukrainian folk dance. Another ballet work to be performed is Khachaturian’s breathtaking Gayane: Sabre Dance. Also included in the repertoire list is Grieg’s ‘Peer Gynt’ Suite No.1 which opens with flutes and oboes before the music unfolds gently and magically. These concerts will also include Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Dvorak’s Slavonic Dance.
