 [Concert Coverage] Family Film Favourites by Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra

Kuala Lumpur, 2023 - I had the privilege of witnessing the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra's (MPO) "Family Film Favourites" orchestra, which was a wonderful event full with energy and passion from start to finish.

Jebat Arjuna Kee Jia Liang, a bright young Malaysian conductor who performed with the MPO, effectively conducted the show. His command of the orchestra transported the audience in an immersive world of film music, enthralling audiences of all ages. It was inspiring to see his enthusiasm and expertise as he led the orchestra.

The appearance of Alasdair Malloy, a popular presenter who added an extra layer of excitement, was one of the show's highlights. Alasdair's interactions with the audience were delightful, and his willingness to dress up in "minions" costumes from Despicable Me brought joy and laughter to everyone.

The performance began with the legendary "20th Century Fox Fanfare" quickly setting the tone for a cinematic experience. As the legendary lion emerged on the screen, Alasdair even encouraged the audience to roar, setting the tone for the enthralling spectacle that followed.

The "Movie Magic Medley" was a real treat for moviegoers, containing mesmerising medleys from well-known films like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Superman, and others. While the Star Wars and Harry Potter segments were cut short in this medley, fans should not be concerned because extended versions of these legendary series were presented later in the evening.

The rendition of "Remember Me" from the animated film Coco was one of my personal highlights of the show. The beautiful music touched my soul, and I found myself shedding tears as I appreciated the emotional depth of the piece.

Alasdair took the time to introduce the instruments utilised in several films, emphasising their presence in the Disney picture Moana in particular. This was followed by an orchestral performance of "Moana: Musical Highlights" which featured three lovely tunes from the film. It was a joy to hear the orchestrated versions of "You're Welcome".

A fascinating interactive part called "The Cunningly Conceived Concealed Cartoon Character Quiz" was added to the show. Each musician was introduced one by one on stage, and the audience was asked to guess the instruments used, the songs played, and the character linked with the song. Songs from classic Disney films such as The Jungle Book, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins, The Lion King, and Toy Story were featured in the part.

The beautiful tunes of "Hero of Hogwarts," containing music from the first three Harry Potter films, were treated to Potterheads. It was a truly enchanting moment that transported us to the wizarding world.

The medley "A Frozen Fantasy" brought back the enchantment of the popular animation Frozen, with favorites like "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" and the powerful anthem "Let It Go." The crowd, particularly the children, couldn't help but sing along and immerse themselves in the enchanting world of Frozen.

To add to the joyous atmosphere, the orchestra presented a lively crossover of "Everything Is Awesome Because We're Happy," combining songs from The Lego Movie and Despicable Me. This confluence of happiness and positivism raised everyone's emotions in the room.

Finally, the show culminated with the grand finale of the "Star Wars Main Theme," leaving the audience in awe. The classic music from one of the most successful film franchises of all time was the perfect way to cap off the amazing show.

The "Family Film Favourites" orchestra show was a delightful and enchanting experience for both young and old. It was a wonderful occasion because to the flawless performances, personable host, and selection of classic film compositions. With their excellent musical renditions, the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra truly brought the magic of the silver screen to life. Jebat Arjuna Kee Jia Liang's talent as a conductor shone brilliantly throughout the performance, and his ability to engage the audience was clear throughout.

Overall, the Malaysian Philharmonic symphonic's "Family Film Favourites" symphonic presentation was a riveting and memorable experience. From the energetic performances to the engaging presenter and the enchanting selection of film compositions, it was an event that celebrated the magic of cinema and music. The MPO's 25th anniversary celebration showcased their talent and dedication to providing excellent performances. It was a concert that actually drew families together via a common love of music and the allure of the big screen.
