MPO holds music outreach programme for 200 schoolchildren

MPO musicians introducing the children to string, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments.

THE Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) organised a music demonstration for 200 children in collaboration with Sekolah Seni Kuala Lumpur (SSKL).

This was a continuation of a similar programme organised by MPO and the Music Faculty of Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris in Perak, it said in a press statement.

With the theme “Introduction to Classical Instruments”, the programme was MPO’s first collaborative effort with SSKL to create awareness of orchestral instruments among the children aged between 13 and 17 years old.

It was part of MPO’s corporate social initiatives to support the arts in schools in Malaysia, nurture student interest and encourage them to take up orchestral instruments as a potential career path.

Thirteen MPO musicians were involved in the event which was divided into four sections – string, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments.

In each segment, the students were given an explanation of the colours, characteristics and tones, and learned the functions of each category.

The demonstration of each section was followed by an ensemble performance.

At the end of the event, the students participated in a “question and answer” session with MPO musicians.

MPO is committed to giving back to society in conjunction with its 25th anniversary this year.

It welcomes more potential collaborators to join its corporate social responsibility activities.
