For all classical music lovers out there, the Jesselton Philharmonic Orchestra (JPO) promises you an enchanting and mesmerizing night of Chamber Music performed at the prestigious Sabah Art Gallery in Kota Kinabalu on Friday 28 October at 7:30pm.
Chamber Music is a form of classical music that is composed for a small group of instruments i.e. duet, trio and quartet ensembles being the most common. Playing Chamber Music requires special skills due to it intimate nature, often being compared to close friends conversing with each other in a social manner.
JPO’s Chamber Music Concert hopes to showcase the talents and skills of their more senior players, by allowing them to perform in this smaller and more intimate group setting. All JPO performers for this concert are presently working as music teachers in local universities, secondary schools and private music schools. JPO’s own renowned conductors, Yap Ling and Kenneth Chia are amongst the performers for the night.
The repertoire of songs for this concert performance covers the Classical and Romantic periods with the diversity being in the combination of ensemble groups – including duets, trios and quartets of piano, wind and string instruments.
Through this enthralling concert, JPO hopes to educate and expose the people of Sabah to a different form of classical music and to increase their awareness and appreciation for Chamber Music.
