The Penang Philharmonic Winds ensemble in action during the concert.

THE Penang Philharmonic Winds ensemble gave its audience a melodic Sunday afternoon with its “Don’t Stop! The Music” concert.

Pieces titled Centuria and Oregon kicked off the performance, held at the Harbor Hall of Dalat International School in Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

They were well-received by the crowd of over a 100, which included many families, as some students and staff of the school were involved.

The 50-strong ensemble helmed by resident conductor Ng Choong Yen then played The Seventh Night of July, before ending the half on a rousing note with Ross Roy.

Nada Ragam Melayu came on after the intermission, followed by the Bond..James Bond medley combining some of the most iconic themes from the film franchise.

The recent concert ended with melodies from Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, which resonated with the younger audience.

More shows are coming up, including one by the Penang Philharmonic Chamber Choir titled “Be Our Guest” on Saturday at The Star Pitt St.

There are two sessions at 3pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at RM30.
