Its been long since I haven’t feast my ears at music shows..the last I’ve attended was the Miller’s Orchestra at Genting Highland in November 2008. Yeah…about 5 month..hehe. Pretty strange. I grew up listening to the loud brass band and orchestra  almost every day back at my alma mater Sultanah Asma School hostel. I miss those years. Since there’s one nearby, I decided to join in.

Apparently, the show is conducted by the Performance Art students of Universiti Malaya. Most of the performers are the final students, if I’m not mistaken. Overall performance are ok.mostly average…but there’s some really impressing…the Soprano girl, Doris who sang Mein Herr Marquis (Herr Marquis means Laughing Song by Johann Strauss Jr., composed for the Opera Die Fledermaus in 1874). The performance made the  grand evening. Here’s the video I’d taken during her performance :

The other impressing perfoermances are from Tan Kwee Chin with Rhapsody Op.11 No.3 C Major ( of the great female pianist Dohnanyi)  and the Tak Lempong, the humble yet amazing Minangkabau traditional music. The conductor himself has done great job conducting the team. And the last performance was from Dr Nasir’s music technology line up. Ouh…I fell in love with the arrangement of  ‘Ku Impikan Bintang’ they’ve played. It’s my fav Sean Ghazi’s song and they played it well.haha…I wish they played Shahnon Shah’s too.  The last song came with the singer…the chief of the Cultural Centre. And it was also my fav. song…sung by Utada Hikaru, Fly Me to the Moon. What a great nite!
