SCHOOL CONCERTS

Encounter’s in-house activities are at the heart of all the MPO’s education programmes orbiting around Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS. These programmes are very much hands on and interactive for the serious minded among us who like serious fun!

These concerts are designed for students and their teachers to get to know more about classical music. Have fun while learning about music in these specially created concerts. Our School Concerts are offered in two sessions on the same day, you can choose either Session 1 (10.00am) or Session 2 (12.30pm).

The Listener

Saturday
Time: 10.00am & 12.30pm

Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra
Gerard Salonga conductor
Magic Circle Mime presenter

The conductor has planned to present a concert exploring the many art forms in which the orchestra is involved but his efforts are complicated by the unexpected participation of a bugle playing mime who wants to sing opera and a tap dancing ballerina. Come and witness this comic dilemma as these two zany characters bring “the art of listening” to life.
