Practice and Concert

Please take note that there is no orchestra practices on 19th and 26th August due to following reasons.

JPO will be involved in the organising of the Midnight Puppet, the Musical which will be staged in Yayasan Auditorium on Sunday, 19 August at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. The two shows are in aid of SRS Datuk Simon Fung New Primary School Block.

A few of the JPO members will be attending the MPYO rehearsals in KL then.

And some of the JPO members will be involved in the patriotic concert put up by the UMS on the evening of 19th.

As for the 26th, most of the JPO members will be competing in the KK Music Festival organised by KKMS at Sutera Harbour, Pan Pacific Function Rooms. This is a whole day event and tickets are available only on that day. A one day pass is RM10 for Adults and RM5 for children below 12. They will also feature a lunch time concert at 1:00pm by a British clarinettist, Kimon Parry. Tickets are RM20 or RM10 if you already have a Festival Pass. Good luck to all those who are competing.

On the same day, the KKYO (Kian Kok Youth Orchestra) will be performing for their annual concert at Kian Kok School Hall at 7.30pm. So all Kian Kok school students who are in the JPO will be taking part in the concert. There will be a guest appearance by the renown violinist from Singapore Foo Say Ming doing a few solo pieces and a duo concerto with Yap Ling and the KKYO. Foo has been here to perform for the KKYO debut concert last year and he is also the leader of the Re:mix (String Orchestra).

2 Sept, Sunday - 2pm-4pm (Concert Band Only)
