Our Family First Visit to Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Petronas

My wife saw the concert advertisement in Astro I think, then she said she wanted to go. Those are the songs that she love. She has been there a few times before the pandemic, she enjoyed the performance there.

The Magnificent Seven

SAT 23 JUL 2022 8:30PM

Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra
Gerard Salonga, conductor
Jaclyn Victor, vocals

The concert was on Saturday night, we went there on Friday night, so that we have a Saturday morning and evening to relax, not so rush. Dress code is smart casual, so we wear quite formally. My wife invited her sister to join us as well.

Went into the hall at 8.15pm, out at 10.45pm. There was a 20 minutes break in between, but we didn’t went out to take a stretch. When they played the Titanic theme, I closed my eyes to imagine I was on board, and my wife thought I fall asleep…

At around 10pm, my boy has reached his limit and almost went into HULK mode. My wife has to comfort him all the time…we survived.

The hall isn’t too big, but was full house. It has the capacity to accommodate for 920 seats which includes box seats, corporate suites and a royal suite.

An action-packed program awaits as conductor Gerard Salonga and the MPO present a collection of the greatest blockbusters of all time! Replay favourite scenes from the intriguing Pink Panther, suave James Bond and epic Titanic as soundtracks by Hollywood’s top film composers keep you at the edge of your seats! Featuring the music of James Horner, Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer, and Henry Mancini.
