Prague Sinfonia in Malaysia

Prague Sinfonia Orchestra - this orchestra team, from Czech Republic, was born as an expanded version of the Prague Chamber Orchestra during their 16th tour in North America.

Christian Benda is their chief conductor and artistic director and they have collaborated for the last 10 years. Prague Sinfonia have been on 16 tours in the United States and Canada, 6 tours to Latin America and Japan. Recently they toured with great acclaim at South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.

The Czech audience can hear them in their concert series held in the large hall of the Rudolfinum (Dvorák Hall) and as regular guest at the two major Czech music festivals, the Prague Spring and the Prague Autumn.

They have made many recordings for labels like EMI, Decca, Sony Classics, Naxos, Polydor, Nippon Columbia, Denon, BMG, Telarc, Ariola, Eurodisc, Supraphon, and their extensive discography boasts a number of prestigious prizes such as the Wiener Flötenuhr, twice the Grand Prix du Disque Académie Charles Cros, and, after having sold one million records, the Golden Disc Award.

After reading the above introduction, the renowned Prague Sinfonia Orchestra will perform a one-night only charity Gala Benefit Concert together with famed violin soloist Min-Lee, pianist Vaclav Macha and young Malaysian soprano Irma Lailatul at the Plenary Hall of the KL Convention Centre on 8 of September 2007. And I'll be there for sure. Orchestra's music is one of my favourite.

Please note that this is a charity concert where funds will be channeled to MY Budding Artists Fund (led by Kiwanis Club of PJ and the Smile Team) and the Sultanah Bahiyah Foundation.

I wonder whether I could stand besides the Sultan and Sultanah of Kedah, the Yang di Pertua Negri of Negri Sembilan as they'll be there to grace the charity concert and possibly the Yang di Pertuan Agong .............. hmmmmmmmmm

The organisers are planning 2 pre-concert cocktails: a VVIP Royal Cocktail to be hosted by the Embassy of the Czech Republic and also another VIP cocktail for the other VIP guests. Now how do I get in there?

If only they perform in the MPO hall, then it'd be much better.
