UM Symphony Orchestra - A Royal Concert

Venue : Dewan Canselor, University of Malaya

The Concert

Celebrating Love and Life is a royal concert in honour of His Royal Highness Sultan Azlan Shah, The Chancellor of the University of Malaya. The year 2007 sees His Royal Highness Sultan Azlan Shah completing 21 year of HRH’s term as Chancellor, as well as celebrating his 79th birthday.

The life of a man goes through many stages. None of these experiences can be delineated to a specific “box” but eventually contribute to the total core of a person.

The components of music chosen in Celebrating Love and Life also aims to show that by whatever genre we assign to a type of music, they add to the entire culture and civilization of man. Music may be subjective, but music is universal.

To keep this music alive, to be appreciated by man on the street and to be enjoyed by the younger generation, different genres need to be presented in a manner that open the hearts and minds of new listeners. The core and the vital essence of music compositions are held intact but packaging must be made more accessible. For example, there will only be one Chopin, just as there will only be one P.Ramlee, but for their music to reach a wider audience and to remain relevant and evergreen, they constantly need new listeners and lovers of their compositions.
